Where the spec currently has "line-left" and "line-right", WebKit uses
"start" and "end" respectively, for its vendor-prefixed logical
margin, border and padding property names. These keywords would be
unambiguous, whereas in the current draft, rtl "line-left" is actually
on the right.
The current spec uses "before" and "after" for the block-flow axis
keywords, matching WebKit's extant use. I suggest changing the inline
axis keywords to match WebKit's usage too.

Also, which of the listed keywords at the start of section 13 are the
"four new" ones?
