In sections 5.4 and 5.5:

[[ User agents MAY accept ‘image-fit’ as an alias for ‘object-fit’, as a  
previous version of this specification used that name. Authors must not  
use ‘image-fit’ in their stylesheets. ]]
[[ User agents MAY accept ‘image-position’ as an alias for  
‘object-position’, as a previous version of this specification used that  
name. Authors must not use ‘image-position’ in their stylesheets. ]]

Are there any precedents in any CSS specifications for this kind of  
aliasing? It sounds to me like a good way of introducing incompatibilities  
between user agents.

Please consider removing the sentences that allow 'image-fit' and  
'image-position'.
