It looks like a good proposal, thank you about that. Although I still 
prefer to make each step as small as possible and enhance 
incrementally with the real feedback, I'm fine to brainstorm and add 
them to the spec to show the direction we're moving forward to.

I actually have less confidence on width-stepping part of the current 
spec, so I'm wondering we add block-height with at-risk, and defer 
width-stepping. Does this look reasonable?

> in many cases baseline alignment within a differently-sized typeset 
block is not what is important

True for blocks with smaller font size such as quotes, but 
occasionally when the block uses larger font size, such as headings, 
baseline is still important. Samples @astearns created use the last 
baseline of headings to snap to the baseline of the body text, and I 
saw other samples do it too. Also, the current workaround (to use 
inline-block) supports this scenario, as you can play with [the 
sample](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-step-sizing/examples/snap-height.html).

So within the all possible combinations, I think:

* Rounding up the box height
* Align center or the last baseline

have priority over other combinations. Thoughts? @fantasai @astearns
