> I guess this is primarily because the current spec uses clear to mean "push to the next fragmentainer", while we've found it would be more useful if it meant "shift down if possible, push to the next fragmentainer if not", like old-fashioned floats do.

@frivoal Ah, so you mean you have two top floats and you place the first one at line start and the second one next to it, unless you clear the second float?

Have you looked at 8.1 and 8.2 about float placement?

How would this work with column floats that are floating in the inline direction?

As we said during the meeting a while ago, the interpretation of what "clear" means will have to be different necessarily when we deal with 2 instead of 1 dimension. I guess this highlights the need to add 2 dimensions to all aspects of the spec, as we said during that meeting.
