Error accumulation vs. performance in cases where there is a
       cyclic dependency between the position/size of the exclusion
       and the surrounding content it affects. (For example, when
       the exclusion is centered or otherwise referencing the bottom
       edge, actually getting the position right would require
       multiple-pass layout. The current spec limits it to two passes,
       which will give wrong results in many cases.)
