I don’t get a vote on this... but I think that the established precedent within XSL shows the way forward. The proposed patch uses monotonic properties with relative direction terminology (start, before, etc.); CSS uses absolute position terms and combines properties. In XSL properties like margin and border, this is handled by defining the relative, monotonic properties as fundamental, and CSS equivalents as synonyms that expand to the XSL versions. If I had a vote, I would vote to accept this patch, but to add mappings from the CSS versions to these monotonic relative properties.
