Thank you for your prompt response.

Spec text-wise, the "end" was unclear to us whether it's logical (DOM order) or visual (after bidi reorder.) Some of us read it as logical, some as visual, hence the question.

Behavior-wise, I remember barely we discussed this before, or was that my wrong memory? Do you have pointers to minutes?

When my team discussed:
* Two of us think `CBA` is more natural, while one think `FED` is more natural.
* The `CBA` is consistent with `overflow-wrap: break-word`, while `FED` is consistent with `overflow: hidden` or `clip`.
* If we consider the line wraps, `CBA` is natural and consistent. If we consider the line doesn't wrap and go beyond the right end, `FED` is natural. Depends on which you assume, the other way is weird and confusing.
* In multi-line option #390, we probably want `CBA` due to above. /cc @bfgeek @tabatkins 
* None of us in the discussion were bidi native.

Having minutes of WG discussion might help our understanding.
