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).

I support this.

This too. To make it easy to set everything in one go, we should also extend the syntax of line-clamp to `none | <integer> <'block-overflow'>?`

No, we should just say that max-lines only applies to fragmentainers. Making it apply to non fragmentainers (by limiting the height or something) looks very much like a footgun to me. Plus it means we'd have to implement something totally different for that case.
