Footnotes are basically float-after areas. Both float before and footnotes
are not much of a problem except for multi column layout (and, well, in
tables). In multi-column layouts, the equal width of the column should
allow reassigning content after decreasing column height without doing a
complete re-layout.
Side floats, of course, are a real pain, especially if you want to do
conflict resolution properly.
