As far computation order, computing 'direction' first wouldn't be an issue in IE either. There are already properties that are stored internally as logical values, so dependency on direction is not a new concept.

(Getting this reduction in complexity might somewhat limit implementation approaches, since it requires computing 'direction'
before cascading any properties with logical/physical pairs.  I think that's not a problem in Gecko, so this approach would simplify our implementation of logical properties significantly.  I'd be interested to hear if it would help in other implementations.)
