I don't have an answer on the status of rtlflip. But on the shapes side of
things, we are considering adding either an 'image' keyword to
shape-outside or supporting the element() function [1] for images, where
the result would create a shape out of the alpha channel of the displayed
image. This would take into account any transformations or content fit
applied to the image, so it would include the effect of rtlflip, if that's
supported.

Thanks,

Alan
