The earliest revisions of this feature didn't have any automatic composition,
and so the property did not inherit -- because it indicated that the entire
contents of this element should be composed.

However, doing automatic composition requires an inherited property. Although
we first had only the manual composition ability, Koji and I had sketched out
the idea of in the future, expanding 'text-combine' be a shorthand setting
'text-combine-all' and 'text-combine-auto', which would introduce the auto-
composition abilities.

Since we're combining both abilities in the spec right now, I think we need
to make this property split now. (We will still encourage authors to use the
shorthand, since that will give correct behavior.)

Comments?

Note, we also have an open renaming issue on this property. I think the top
contender was 'force-horizontal'.
