Certainly not by ID, but by selector might work.

If the new ‘float’ values from GCPM (esp. ‘top’ and ‘bottom’) get accepted, it’s not unreasonable to also have new values for ‘clear’ and it’s also not unreasonable to float (or clear) horizontally and vertically at the same time.

It’s either inappropriate or impossible in the cases I’m thinking about.
