We definitely should be able to get to the point where implementations agree on the available geometry for line boxes. 
What they do within those line boxes isn't well-specified enough to guarantee identical line breaks, though (we don't guarantee identical line breaks within simple rectangles!). And as @AmeliaBR points out part of the algorithm for determining where line boxes go depends on the content width, so if there are different line breaks then it's possible implementations will differ in line box placement next to floats.
But I'm all for adding more details on how implementations should process float areas and line boxes so we can get as close as we can.
