@Yes: I have now included both in the latest draft. It is only a brief
piece of prose so far. if we are going to to move everything about inline
floats into the same spec, then we should go through everything related to
inline floats and make sure it's all there in sufficient detail.

@Tab: Ok, I would agree. However, there are the concerns stated by Brad
that page floats should use another property and possibly have another
name, because they build on top of Exclusions.

If we do go ahead and say that this spec should cover all the different
ways of using the float property, then maybe we should call it something
else than CSS Page Floats?
