This seems to be my problem. What is the transformation between the
canvas and the flowable system? Also, I cannot figure out what
Flowable.wrap should return.

Thinking it over, I have two fundamental questions: is it right that I
cannot know where my flowable will be placed within the frame? For my
purpose, am I using a flowable only to get access to the canvas?

Apart from the transformation problem: am I implementing the flowable
subcalss correctly?

Thank you both for your help so far.
