AmeliaBR has just created a new issue for 
https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [css-inline][css-box-3] Define "line box" and "inline(-level) box" 
somewhere ==
As far as I can tell, the CSS 2.1 definitions of [line 
box](https://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/visuren.html#line-box) and [inline 
box/inline-level 
box](https://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/visuren.html#inline-boxes) have not 
been repeated as formal definitions in any of the CSS level 3 text 
layout specs.

I'm not sure whether the intention is to place all the definitive 
definition for them in [Basic Box Model 
3](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-box-3/), but for "line box" in 
particular, the current rough & outdated draft points to CSS Text 3, 
which no longer defines the term.  [CSS Inline 
3](http://www.w3.org/TR/css-inline-3/) would seem to be a logical 
place for that definition -- it is where you get redirected if you 
follow http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-linebox from [an ancient draft 
spec](https://www.w3.org/TR/2002/WD-css3-linebox-20020515/#LineBox) --
 but it never defines its terms.
