[Bug 12858] This doesn't actually define "align descendants". It says which descendants are to be aligned, but not what's supposed to happen to them. Is it like floating, or something else?

I assume you are asking for more detail in this sentence:

"When a user agent is to align descendants of a node, the user agent is
expected to align only those descendants that have both their 'margin-left' and
'margin-right' properties computing to a value other than 'auto', that are
over-constrained and that have one of those two margins with a used value
forced to a greater value, and that do not themselves have an applicable align
attribute. When multiple elements are to align a particular descendant, the
most deeply nested such element is expected to override the others."

What kind of detail are you looking for?

Would this be accurate and sufficient?:

"... Aligned elements are expected to be aligned by having the used values of
their left and right margins be set accordingly."
