Hi Björn, Jon

We have changed the draft such that the computed value of the display
property, on the one hand, and the value returned by getTrait on the
display property are clearly distinguished. This allows the full range
of computed values (block, inline etc) to inherit to child elements
which may make use of them, and allows getTrait to return the only two
values that affect SVG rendering.

We will add a test to the 1.2 test suite.

Please let us know if this does not satisfy your joint comment.
