In my use-case, content flows from one box (constrained by viewport or
content height) to another. I think it’s simpler for this particular case
to solve it using fragmentation.

I agree that removing the viewport height constraint changes the use case.
Saying a different use case can be solved by floats that exist today
doesn’t change the fact that the unchanged use case requires a more
complex float extension.
