Position now says:

> The containing block of a static, relative, or sticky box is as defined by its formatting context.

Since Flexbox, Grid, etc all have their own specialized definitions of CB, linking to Box explicitly is no longer correct anyway.

Currently Block/Flow layout is defined by 2.1, and it does define CB for that display type, so this is currently addressed satisfactorily, I think? When we finally do pull that bit out into a Flow Layout spec it'll need to come along, but that should happen automatically. ^_^
