Don proposed 'unionRect()'
I'm fine with that.
 
Saying this issue will block implementers and test writers is a bit
strong. It takes 5 minutes to change the implementation side and tests.
My opinion.

routines.  


On the other hand, the 'get' routines are simply fetching something that
has been previously 'set'.

Likewise.

What is more important:  the WG should approve a tentative resolution as
soon as possible.  This is an issue that will actually block
implementors and test writers, if I understand correctly.  Would it be a
good idea to implement and write tests to the tentative resolution,
instead of the actual LC spec?

		union() is not a good method name. Given that 'union' is
a C/C++ keyword, it cannot get compiled by the MIDL compiler (on
Windows). 
		
		We need a new name. Either: 
		i) Union(): but we have so far, started method names
using lower cap characters. 
		ii) calcUnion() or getUnion(): or something similar.
