Section 4.1 (flow-into) notes that înone╣, îinherit╣, îdefault╣ and
îinitial╣ are invalid flow names, but does not specify what happens when you
use an invalid name. Section 4.2 (flow-from) does not mention invalid flow
names at all. 

I am assuming that if an element has a 'flow-into: inherit' declaration then
the element does not get placed into a flow. And if an element has a
'flow-from: inherit' declaration it does not become a region.

If this is correct, the <ident> definition in both sections should have this
text:

The values înone╣, îinherit╣, îdefault╣ and îinitial╣ are invalid flow
names. If an invalid flow name is used, the declaration is invalid and must
be ignored.

Thanks,

Alan
