@astearns I have two issues with your edit. It seems to ignore the 
part of the discussion after Liam chimed in.

- You did not include an informative note giving Liam's concrete 
suggestion of a better algorithm for `multi-line`. I think this would 
increase the likelyhood of implementation by giving a starting point 
to implementers who're willing to give it a shot without being experts
 on the topic, so it’s worth including.

- The discussion above suggested that explicitly opting into stable 
layout was desirable. I proposed doing that by switching the initial 
value to `auto`, and requiring a stable algo for `wrap`. The way you 
specified it does not include that (and would prevent us from doing it
 later, since you have the same value with different semantics), so I 
suppose you disagree. I know you have a note, but if anyone implements
 the spec as it is now, that only leaves the possibility of a new 
property open, not the one of a different set of values.

Unfortunately, you haven't replied to the comments proposing these, so
 it is difficult to know from what angle to argue.

I can open new issues and repeat the argument there if you want, but 
at the same time, the context is here, so it seems easier to discuss
