I just realized I don't update you these days on the status in Japan, sorry about that.

The primary career is still the e-books market, Google Books Japan has started a couple of weeks ago, and as far as I know, at least 200,000 HTML pages with writing-mode:vertical-rl have been created and distributed commercially today. I expect this number to increase by the factor of 5 to 10 in 3 to 6 months.

None of them use logical directions at all. I'd like to finish this 17 years old WD at least for the part people has started using this widely.

Is he? He objects to change, and he doesn't seem to object to keep discussing to me.

The value of having logical directions in writing-modes spec isn't high. There has been a wish to have logical properties back in future, so the level 1 can contain just directions, and the level 2 may be able to cover logical properties too.

Neither FO nor reverting is workable for everyone. I can see postponing logical directions is the only workable solution.
