Hello,

a new position property value would be great to see in a new spec update
(http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-position/):
A mixture of the absolute and relative position property value,
which behaves like the relative value but doesn't affect the normal
document flow like with absolute.

Currently such a rendering behavior is just possible
by adding the parent element a relative position and the child the
absolute position, but why such a detour?

Here an example of what should be achieved by a new position value:
