a2sheppy has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [css-overflow] add overflow-block and overflow-inline to support CSS Writing Modes ==
Currently, neither css-overflow (https://drafts.csswg.org/css-overflow) nor css-logical (https://drafts.csswg.org/css-logical/) define a method for specifying values for the `overflow` property based on the current writing direction. Instead, you can only specify the overflow in terms of the X and Y axes. This is highly limiting when trying to adapt to a multi-locale environment where you may need to set overflow based on the direction of text flow.

Either in css-overflow or in css-logical (whichever is appropriate), there should be a definition for how to set overflow based on the text flow rather than strict X/Y directions.
