I'm not sure what you mean.  You mean that the change in my patch to
run the lazyAttach logic from insertedIntoDocument may cause
additional style recalcs?  The new element needs style calculated
regardless.  Marking an element with childNeedsStyleRecalc doesn't
recalculate the style for that object to my knowledge.
