There are no nesting levels, it doesn't work that way. If you have two
absolutely positioned viewports and each has 10 levels of nested viewports
inside you need to be able to have two threads that lay them both out in
parallel without ever stopping or talking to each other. No shared state at

My proposal only has style resolution going downward, but you said it's not
as flexible, so I'll need more explanation of what's different about yours
since I'm not quite following.
