syntactically disallow certain combinations that are unnecessarily
difficult to implement at this point in time (e.g. table cell flex
containers), while allowing for future expansion.

It also establishes new syntax for defining inline boxes, inline-block
boxes, block boxes, and block-level block formatting context roots:

Lastly, we improved the glossary and introduction to better define key
terms such as the box tree:

feedback on the box-suppress issues:
and run-in issues:
