It wasn't so much that I wanted to write a different spec. It was that
 I would expect properties with "float" in their name to be based on 
existing (inline) floats, and I was describing a theoretical spec that
 was based on how existing (inline) floats could gain a second 
dimension without changing what the first dimension meant in 
combination with the second. 

I'm perfectly fine with page "floats" being based on exclusions, as 
long as they are separate from existing floats, and don't mix 
exclusions into the same property names, or use 'float' as part of the
 property name. They should have property names and spec terminology 
that doesn't use the word "float" for anything, other than to point 
out the ways that floats and exclusions are similar or different. I 
didn't like the mixing of the two distinct methods of stacking and 
wrapping elements.
