The spec doesn't seem to say anything about how inline formatting works
when an exclusion divides a line into multiple discontiguous segments of
available space in the inline progression direction. This could never
happen in CSS before. It seems to me that quite a few issues will need to
be sorted out. For example, example 1 in the draft shows hyphenation and
justification being applied to each segment individually. This needs to be
specified. If the idea is to treat each segment as a different line, that
needs to be specified. You would need to specify whether ::first-line
applies to the first segment of a line or the whole line. You would need to
clarify how text-indent works if the text-indent is wider than the first
segment. Etc.

Thanks,
Rob

But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
that you may be children of your Father in heaven. ... If you love those
who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors
doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more
than others?" [Matthew 5:43-47]
