smfr has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [css-viewport] Help me bikeshed "layout viewport" ==
CSS Position says:

> Fixed positioning is similar to absolute positioning. The only difference is that for a fixed positioned box, the containing block is established by the viewport

That "established by the viewport" has to change in CSS Viewport to mean what implementors currently call the "layout viewport", but "layout viewport" is a sucky name (it's not used for most layout, and it's not really a viewport).

CSS Viewport could define something like "fixed position containing block", or say that the containing block for fixed position is established by the THING, but I need a name for THING.
