Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-overflow-3] max-lines not forwards compatible with fragmented overflow

One way to solve this would be backporting `continue: auto | discard` so that `max-lines` will _not_ discard by default, only when `continue: discard` is specified. Thus an implementation of `max-lines` + `continue: fragments` will not discard the content (as the author did not intend). In this case, we'd extend `line-clamp` to also set `continue: discard` so that it preserves its current behavior.

However, in this case, it would end up overflowing the box, which is maybe not a great improvement.
