Thank you guys to accept the suggested values for float.

But wait we are not done. It is not only float needed such
direction-dependent values. As i've mentioned in the first email there are
other styles which may require same values.
The suggested styles would be something like this:

clear: start/end as mentioned here:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2009Dec/0081.html
padding-start / padding-end
border-start / border-end
outline-start / outline-end
margin-start / margin-end
background-position: start/end

I don't thing implementation of above styles isn't hard and won't cause any
issue. But it seems there will problem with their compact syntax:
for example start/end place can be known where to place with current syntax:
padding: top right bottom left;
same for others.

It is needed to be discussed how the new start/end would apply to those
compact syntax.
