Hello,

In section 4.1, the possible break points section says things like, about sibling boxes:

"when the block flow direction of the sibling's parent is parallel "

This refers to a notion of parent for layout boxes. I think this should be defined in the spec. In particular, in the case of regions, the content of a named flow does not necessarily have a common parent. We can have elemA and elemB moved to a named flow and they do not share a common parent. When laying them out, they will generate boxA and boxB. In that context, I think we should clarify that they are still sibling boxes for the purpose of layout and say that the block flow direction that is used is that of the first region (see section 4.1 of the regions draft, http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-regions/#the-flow-into-property, note on writing mode).

Cheers,
Vincent
