Agree with Koji that the way this works isn't ideal for the use cases.
 The ideal solution here really is #2: `text-combine-upright` changes 
the range of `::first-letter`--but I'm not sure how implementable that
 is. Failing that, I think the specs currently imply that 
`text-combine-upright` would fail to combine (due to the element 
boundary), though it isn't 100% clear since in theory that boundary 
exists whether or not `::first-letter` is styled. So at minimum we 
need to clarify that if `::first-letter` isn't styled, it doesn't 
exist to interfere with `text-combine-upright`.

(Koji, `initial-letter` isn't the only property that applies to 
`::first-letter`, so making it do some kind of selection magic the way
 `text-combine-upright` does wouldn't work.)
