The CSS Text Decoration Module Level 3[1] allows two implementation of drawing emphasis marks for characters for which ruby is drawn in the same position:
1. Ruby should be stacked between the emphasis marks and text, and the position is kept consistent.
2. Ruby should be hidden and emphasis marks are drawn.
But Kenny pointed out a while ago that there is 3rd implementations in the physical books:
3. Ruby should be stacked between the emphasis marks and text, and the position is NOT kept consistent.

I'd like to propose changing the text and Figure 5 for future specifications to allow #3 implementation.

Please let me know if any.
