In case we decide to rename the positioned masking properties. fantasai, you suggested renaming the heading “Layered Masking” to “Positioned Masking”. I assume you would like to have a different naming schema for the properties as well. ‘mask-position-*’ might be confusing in combination with the '*-position’ longhand. Do you maybe have another suggestion?

I changed ‘mask-box-image-‘ to ‘mask-box-*’. We can discuss this change during the call tomorrow.
