"parent element" is a perfectly well-defined thing.  It's just not the right one for the writing-mode case, not least because of display:contents.

YES!  "parent element" in CSS Cascade terms is the same exact concept as "parent element" in the DOM.

> and say "the parent it inherits from"

Gives the wrong behavior for display:contents, at least.

Please stop flailing and sort out what the behavior should actually be instead of just guessing and checking....
