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

== [css-values] A more reasonable unit for `letter-spacing` ==
The `letter-spacing` property is commonly used to make micro-adjustments to typography, so in practice you'd mostly see minuscule fractions such as `0.015em`, or `-0.05em`s. Wouldn't the unit of 1/1000em [that Adobe products use](https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/using/kerning-tracking.html) be more expressive for the vast majority of cases?
