The 'orphans' and 'widows' properties in 2.1 are defined with respect to 'the minimum number of lines of a paragraph'.

I suggest changing this to 'the minimum number of line boxes in a block element'.

I also suggest adding:
"The UA may also apply 'orphans' and 'widows' to elements with other display types, such as:
    table: the value applies to the minimum number of table-rows which must be left at the bottom or top of the page.
    table-row: the value indicates the minimum number of line boxes within the table row which must be left at the bottom or top of the page.
    lists: the value indicates the minimum number of list items which must be left at the bottom or top of the page.
"

Best wishes,

Melinda
