BTW, [a discussion at mozilla.dev.platform](https://groups.google.com/d/msg/mozilla.dev.platform/cnEN_sccXJY/-0W_P31cCwAJ) clarified that the use cases (and thus desired behaviors) are different between mine and Latin. This has been gradually understood, if I think now, but I was unconscious. The discussion was so much helpful to clarify that.

So I added [a section about East Asian Casual Vertical Rhythm](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-rhythm/#eastasia) to clarify different two (or three, not sure at this point) use cases, and which property and combination works good for which use cases.

I'm under impression that even for the strict vertical rhythm, Latin and East Asia are different enough that we're likely to end up with 3 different behaviors; 1) East Asian Casual, 2) East Asian Strict, and 3) Latin Strict, but maybe we can merge 2 and 3, or other writing systems have 4th or more use cases. That should be figured out sometime in future, but as I wrote there, I'm focusing on East Asian Casual first.
