There seems to be a misunderstanding.
I'm not proposing any new feature. The feature, namely frame formatting 
property style:flow-with-text, already exists. I only want to state that 
the current specification text doesn't define all use cases and I'm 
asking to add the missing definitions to the specification text.

BTW, the frame formatting property style:flow-with-text has originally 
been proposed by the former Sun TC member Daniel Vogelheim for 
OpenOffice.org. The property's purpose is to reflect the OpenOffice.org 
feature, which has been described in the specification, I've mentioned 
and attached in my previous eMail.

Regards, Oliver.
