@MurakamiShinyu: "top bottom" instead of "snap" sounds OK to me. What I am more concerned about are the last two examples: What happens when there is a second float with the same 2 dimensions? In which direction do they stack?  

If one goes in the bottom left corner, can there also be float into the bottom right corner? 

What if you have these three floats in the in this order on a page of English text that is 5in wide:

1. Bottom right, shape: square with sides of 2 in

2. Bottom right, shape: rectangular with a height of 2in and a width of 4in.

3. Bottom left, shape: square with sides of 2 in

Will float 2 stack upward?
Will the float 3 "jump" over float 2 to be placed in the bottom left corner?

I believe these were some of the questions that made us go with th current model.
