Hey,
we had a phone meeting in December 2015 on page floats where we came up
with a concept of doing floats in 2 dimensions with sensible stacking
directions. There was another F2F meeting in May 2017 where some ideas
about redesign were mentioned and decided upon. I heard about the meeting a
few hours earlier and participated via video call, but did not have time to
prepare me for much of that.

The published draft text [1] has not been updated with any of these
changes, and there has been a recent blog post [2] saying that page floats
should be two dimensional. I agree that they should be 2-dimensional, but
this has to be done in a way that does not create problems when stacking,
and the reason that the draft text has not been updated is not that I have
been lazy, but that the company which hired me to do work on the spec
initially decided to prioritize differently and not have me work on the
spec draft any more after FPWD. It is probably not quite correct that I am
listed as the sole editor of that spec at this stage.
