    Sounds resonable to me.. although I know of tons of trivial crasher bugs
    now (ie. Insert a Table gives

    **** (1) Assert ****
    **** (1) m_iMaxWidthLayoutUnits at fp_Line.h:95 ****
    **** (1) Continue ? (y/n) [y] :

    ), and most of these big crahers should be fixed before a release.

    Has any work on this been done? How are we going to do this? Are we
    going to have truly floating objects, or are they embedded like images
    for example?

    1 vote extra for 2.0. It's good marketing :)
