I guess the question is whether it's worth defining that value as well.

>From an implementation perspective, I have two options... add a new value to line-box-contain and use it as part of the default value in quirks mode, or I can just apply the quirks mode behavior to the "block" and "inline" values.  I'll probably just do the latter if we don't think there's any real need to define the quirks mode behavior as an explicit value.
