I mentioned it in another thread full of other points, but how do you feel about making 'overflow-x' and 'overflow-y' be based on writing mode, so that 'overflow-x' overflowed to the left for vertical-rl writing? If there are compatibility concerns, this behavior could be switched on with a separate property, such as 'overflow-behavior: logical | physical', or something like that.
