faceless2 has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [css-display-3] Example of blockification of display property not quite correct  ==
In example 2 under section 2.7 - the discussion of "blockification" states:

"Absolute positioning or floating an element blockifies the box’s display type. [CSS2]"

Not quite true, otherwise these would be identical
```
<div>Inline <span style="display:inline; position: absolute">absolute</span></div>
<div>Inline <span style="display:block; position: absolute">absolute</span></div>
```
As this is just an example, I would suggest changing the text to "Floating an element blockifies the box’s display type", which is unequivocally true.
