 * rendering object for the point that anchors out-of-flow rendering
 * objects such as floats and absolutely positioned elements

 * Destruction of a placeholder and its out-of-flow must observe the
 * following constraints:
 * - The mapping from the out-of-flow to the placeholder must be
 *   removed from the frame manager before the placeholder is destroyed.
 * - The mapping from the out-of-flow to the placeholder must be
 *   removed from the frame manager before the out-of-flow is destroyed.
 * - The placeholder must be removed from the frame tree, or have the
 *   mapping from it to its out-of-flow cleared, before the out-of-flow
 *   is destroyed (so that the placeholder will not point to a destroyed
 *   frame while it's in the frame tree).
 * Furthermore, some code assumes that placeholders point to something
 * useful, so placeholders without an associated out-of-flow should not
 * remain in the tree.
 * The placeholder's Destroy() implementation handles the destruction of
 * the placeholder and its out-of-flow. To avoid crashes, frame removal
 * and destruction code that works with placeholders must not assume
 * that the placeholder points to its out-of-flow.
