Hi all,

just today I understood what the new check for the float means for a 
real life document:

This code breaks the float package if fixltx2e is loaded afterwards. 
Which happens if one has the habit of loading packages alphabetically 
and invoking fontspec which requires fixltx2e. By this, documents with 
the header



will not compile anymore. Is this intended? Would it help or do any harm 
if the float check would be added \AtBeginDocument?
