Thank you for your feedback. The CSSWG has addressed your concerns in the upcoming publication of the CSS 2.1 specification[1]. 

The CSSWG resolved to  update the specification to clearly state that the 'clip' property deals in physical coordinates.

We hope this closes your issue.

Please respond before 18 March, 2011 if you do not accept the current resolution.
