Hi Alex,

That would also mean that the region-overflow would now apply to all regions, and not only the last one, as it does currently. In that case, shouldn't we have two values: 'break' and 'nobreak' that apply to all regions. 'break' means break the flow and, if there are more regions, continue to flow. 'nobreak' means that the remainder of the flow is consumed by the current region which will accomodate as much of the content as it can (which can be useful if we get height:auto working).

Currently ‘region-overflow’ has two values – ‘auto’ and ‘break’, which technically are enough for what it defines.

However what if it had an explicit option of ‘nobreak’? It would do exactly what ‘auto’ does on last region but… it would also prevent that region from ever being linked. That may be useful when defining auto-sizing regions (which will want to be either single-region flows or the last regions in flow)…
