Under my proposal, 'float: start' would be short for 'float: start none', meaning 1D effect in inline direction only. 

Tab's idea was that 'float: start' would be short for 'float: start start', which would be 2D. That might have been only for the 'float-reference: <not-inline>' case though. In which case, it would be safe to use it when you had 'float-reference: inline', since that would be 1D too.
