I worry that clamping can result in a bad author experience. It's quite frustrating when you change the value of a property but there is no visible change. Even worse is changing a value of the property and the line disappears. 

More generally, why is CSS now restricting what authors can do? I can create unreadable text in a thousand different ways. CSS gives authors tremendous power, and talented people can use features in unexpected and beautiful ways. Is it the role of the CSS Working Group to say that some designs are OK, and some designs shouldn't even be possible?
