Now that the iPhone X has been announced, the suggestion to add safe-area-insets is more clear. The idea is that a page needs to know how to avoid the rounded corners and notch at the top or side of the screen (depending on orientation).

The term "safe area" has been around for a fair while in TV, and we think it makes sense here. Since the value can change depending on orientation, it needs to be exposed directly to the style sheet - hence the proposal for CSS constants.
