The issue about 'block-flow' value tb/rl/lr/bt, it says:
"Would downward/leftward/rightward/upward be better value names?"

I think tb/rl/lr/bt should not be changed. These are consistent with
the shorthand property 'writing-mode' value lr-tb, tb-rl, etc.
Note that the 'writing-mode' is not only used in CSS but also in 
other W3C specs, XSL-FO and SVG, we should not change the its values.

2nd reason: In Japanese, the terms "左横書き" (hidari-yoko-gaki =
left-horizontal-writing) and "右縦書き" (migi-tate-gaki =
right-vertical-writing) etc. are used. Here "right-" means right-to-left
but the term "rightward" is easily confused with it, at least for Japanese
like me :-)
