Tab and I have a couple of proposals:

1. Remove the 'vm' unit
    - We have min() now, so we can use that.
    - The abbreviation is non-obvious.
    - If we keep it, rename to vmin so it's obvious.

    Filed as ISSUE-190 http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/Tracker/issues/190

2. Move Stages of Value Computation to CSS3 Cascade
    - It seems to fit better there (it's about processing, not value types).
    - The content is in CSS2.1 already, so no loss.

    Filed as ISSUE-192 http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/Tracker/issues/192

3. Remove <fraction> and <grid> from CSS3 Values and Units
    - Definitions are only stubs: they depend on layout modules to define them.
    - It's unclear whether we'll actually use them.
    - We can add them in level 4 if it becomes clear they need to be in the
      common Values and Units module.

    Filed as ISSUE-193 http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/Tracker/issues/193
