I'm not a fan of "vertical first" because it has other problems, but that's another discussion for another day.  I've been holding off on raising that issue with the WG for now, though I've discussed it in some depth internally.


As such, I strongly prefer the grammar...
	to [[left | right] || [top | bottom]]

versus...
	to [top|bottom]-[left|right]

More specifically, keep the separator between endpoint keywords as a space rather than a hyphen and allow either order (for horizontal / vertical keywords).
