'text fitting' is making text fit into fixed space (or spaces), for example by tweaking font size or character spacing.

That really is not a features specific to regions. It is useful for things like titles too (when a newspaper wants title to fit in exactly one line). It should be a feature of general text layout.

By 'text fitting' do you mean fitting text into non-rectangular regions?  That should be a separate spec.  Same with baseline alignment - this should be Line Grid or something like that.
