This feature remains at risk and, afaik, is not implemented by any browser. 
If it does not pass the CR period then the behavior will be undefined. Unless,
of course, this was agreed to pass CR at the f2f and I missed it in the minutes?

Again, I am fine with leaving it undefined in Level 3. But I'd rather be explicit
about it, on testing grounds at the least. If we want to formalize the behavior
described in box-decoration-break, then the prose may have to move up elsewhere
and we should talk about this at the next telcon.
