Note that apparently a huge amount of the mobile web depends on webkit-line-clamp (we see it used on [15% of page views](https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=305376#c27) on Android).  @miketaylr [says](https://miketaylr.com/pres/goog-moz/?full#list) this is one of the top web compat issues in Firefox, and so I've [re-opened a chromium bug](https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=305376) saying that (if we can't remove it) we need to specify our behavior somewhere.  @tabatkins said awhile back he'd be happy to help with this.

Should we work on this in css-overflow, or would it make more sense first to just try to document the existing WebKit/blink -webkit-line-clamp behavior in the [compat spec](https://compat.spec.whatwg.org)?
