https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [css-display] rename box-suppress property ==
I suggest renaming `box-suppress` ([defined 
here](https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/blob/master/css-display/Overview.bs#L545))
 to something with a positive context rather than a negative one. The 
issue is that `box-suppress: discard;` may be confusing because of the
 inherent double-negative.  An author may think that `box-suppress: 
discard;` means the previous `box-suppress` value is discarded. 

I suggest
```
Name: box-suppress
Value: show | discard | hide
Initial: show
```
be renamed to 
```
Name: box-generation
Value: initial | none | no-fill
Initial: initial
```
where the values map from `show` to `initial`, `discard` to `none`, 
and `hide` to `no-fill`.
