As I mentioned in my original email and in my response to dbaron,
overflow:fragments is a fantastic way to create region chains entirely in
CSS. But in order to have named flows and overflow:fragments work
together, it's *required* that flow-from work on elements. I think it's
valid to discuss whether we should add named flows to the platform or not,
but if we do named flows then having flow-from apply to elements is the
only way they can integrate correctly with the rest of CSS.

Thanks,

Alan
