I haven't thought through the whole thing here, but one initial

floater on the same line as the current one.

This isn't true, because the anchor point of the float need not be at 
a break point, and the position of the next break point might not fit 
in the line.  In this case, the float needs to be pushed down in order
 to satisfy rule 6:
> The outer top of an element's floating box may not be higher than 
the top of any line-box containing a box generated by an element 
earlier in the source document. 

It's not yet clear to me how much of the above argument this refutes.
