Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-display][css-position] Computed value of float with absolute positioning when there is no box?

Proposed resolution is that an element with `display: none`, a child of an element with `display: none`, and an element with `display: contents` should all behave the same with respect to computed value computations, and therefore the full set of computed value transformations in CSS2.1§9.7 should be applied in all three of these cases.

Possible edits:
  * Remove bullet #1 and the “Otherwise” in item #2 -- the fact that `display: none` doesn't generate a box is already described under the definition of `display: none`.
  * Copy text about “if 'position' has the value 'absolute' or 'fixed', the box is absolutely positioned, the computed value of 'float' is 'none'” into bullet #1.
  * Put “if 'position' has the value 'absolute' or 'fixed', the computed value of 'float' is 'none'” as step 0.  In step 2, remove “the computed value of 'float' is 'none'”. (Then renumber the steps to start with 1 again.)
