Sorry, this doesn't address my concern at all, first the link to 'border-image-outset' is completely irrelevant as it has neither physical or logical longhands, nor any way to set the values in logical directions (afaict). Second, the link to 'margin' in css2.1 has no reference to or mention of logical properties.

The concern here came up during TAG review, scroll-snap specifies a shorthand, and both physical and logical longhands, but has absolutely no information that explains how the shorthand maps to the longhands, and the links given don't help. While I could make an educated guess, others couldn't. At the least, a brief sentence explaining that the shorthand sets all the longhands, in the manner described by [css-logical ยง3.2](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-logical/#margin-properties) (or a better link) would be helpful. I get that this is probably obvious to the editors, but it's not obvious to a casual reader (which is the real issue).
