I have a clarifying question. It's often stated that since the current timing is undefined, this will lead to interoperability problems.

Can someone point me to the part of the spec that is problematic? That is, where is the line that says "UAs may run this algorithm at any time"? I am not sure what to Ctrl+F for.

Secondly, could someone produce a code snippet that would cause such interop problems, given the current spec?

Finally, assuming we have such an example, would there be a way to tighten the spec language such that we don't need to specify e.g. when style recalculation happens, but instead specify constraints? Like "offsetTop must always reflect the redistributions" or something.

I've updated the gist to reflect the discussion so far:

Please leave a comment if I missed anything.
