Implement the box generation keywords from CSS Display Level 3

When using layout modes like flexbox and grid, there is a conflict between the desire to keep the DOM tree relatively flat, to avoid complex, unperformant, highly-nested layouts, and grouping elements in a way that makes sense semantically and allows easy manipulation via data-binding frameworks like Angular.

This conflict can be solved by supporting the "display: contents" box-generation mode from CSS Display Module Level 3. This allows elements to be configured to generate no box of their own, only those of their children. In this way, complex, nested DOM structures can generate much simpler box trees.
