[css-ui] text-overflow in overflow:visible blocks

'text-overflow' was recently changed to be applied at the line box edge
instead of the block's content edge.  Here's the relevant spec text:

"This property specifies rendering when inline content overflows its
line box edge in the inline progression direction of its block container
element ("the block") that has overflow other than visible."
http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-ui/#text-overflow

I think we should take one step further and drop the "that has overflow
other than visible" requirement.

That was part of Tantek's proposal under "In addition, ..." here:

Was that part considered but rejected? (if so, why?) or is it simply
an oversight when updating the spec?

Regards,
Mats
