How can a new value of clip be used for the property of overflow when 
clip is a property itself [1] (e.g. CSS2.1)?

Why is a new value of overflow being introduced into a new spec and not 
just (CSS3/CSS4) css-overflow [2]?

How can a new spec 'css-overflow-clipping' be introduced when the spec 
where is being dragged from, being 'css-overflow' is incomplete and unclear?

How can such differing behavior between Firefox/Chrome vs IE10/Opera be 
overlooked in this test case [3] or Firefox/IE10/Opera vs Chrome be 
overlooked in this test case [4] when this will impact on the behavior 
that is partly defined in 'css-overflow-clipping'?
