The requirement to support inter-column baseline alignment stands, and
I 'line-stacking-strategy' sounds like the right property. I'm unsure
about what 'line-box-contain' does, there seems to be a typo in the
description ("height height").

In my mind, I'd like to have one property to describe how to calculate
the height of a line (called line-height, stacking-height or
something), and another to say how to stack the lines. The
inter-column constraint will be a value on the second property.
