Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-writing-modes] mixed writing modes

Glad to hear there's spec for using columns for overflow. It's definitely something that's great to have.

But I believe, in this issue, making horizontal scrolling convinent would be another resolution desired(or even preferred) by some people. Though the OP was just talking about columns for overflow, I guess when people are raising such issues, they could be even unconscious that having horizontal scrollbars on child elements is an option(due to inconvenience of horizontal scrolling for desktop mouse devices).

One more thing to be carified: An overflowed rtl box child box(by either `writing-mode: vertical-rl` or `direction: rtl`), already has its default horizontal scrollbar position started at the right edge(not the left edge), that's the case for almost all browsers. So you don't even need to first scroll the embedded vertical Japanese to the right edge, they are _initially_ at the right edge.
