Related previous discussion was in https://drafts.csswg.org/css-scroll-snap/issues-by-issue#issue-45 fwiw.

Snapping in one axis and not the other was seen as important, and the main thing people would want to do--snapping in both axes is fairly awkward unless you're in a strictly gridded layout.

We didn't add per-axis strictness because we didn't have a use case that wanted mandatory in one axis and proximity in the other. But we did limit the syntax of the property so that we could add that in the future if there were use cases for it. (Usually keywords are re-orderable, but if we have per-axis strictness then there needs to be a fixed order.)
