Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask, but I'm wondering why `run-in` is marked as *at risk*?

It saddened me that run-in was removed from Chrome earlier.

It's very useful for writing semantic html (headings/paragraphs) while being able to style the heading to be part of the subsequent block. It is also useful in single-page apps where 'widgets' are composed of custom-elements/web-components, and the element should be separate in the html source, but presented as a run-in visually.

I really hope it can be re-introduced as part of `css-display-3`. The alternative to achieve similar styling is brittle and error prone (usually position:relative + top offset values).


*Please let me know if there is another place that's better for comments like this.*
