tdf#96277 revert ww8 import: fix upper margin of floating table
commit 3755c87d0426a499d4755e82d8fbc77caa240764
mis-positions non-textframed floating tables.

The patch only worked under very ideal circumstances
that cannot be identified during import time. Lots of bug
reports indicate real world problems with it.

This is a pretty safe revert because the code only
processes a document one time, so old documents don't
depend on this to work.

Yes, under certain assumptions the reverted patch made some documents nicer. But it wasn't generally accurate, so it was reverted.

Not treating this bug as a regression. But since the previous bug was a Novell? (bnc), we can leave this report in here as an instance of page-anchored tables not being imported properly.

So this can be the DOC version of this bug. The DOCX version is bug 80717.
