Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-inline] inline-sizing property name is too similar to inline-size (#5189)

The CSS Working Group just discussed `inline-sizing is too similar to inline-size`.

<details><summary>The full IRC log of that discussion</summary>
&lt;TabAtkins> Topic: inline-sizing is too similar to inline-size<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> nigel: Semantics of the feature aren't in question, but name is.<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> nigel: Many proposals that people ahve added to the thread<br>
&lt;Rossen_> q?<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> nigel: A bit of side topic - if you think about the problem differently, this is about extending the backgroudn area in the inline direction, at the end of each line, so the text isn't up against the edge of the bg, often used in captions<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> florian: I think we're confusing two features here.<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> florian: line-padding is still called line-padding and is in Text 4.<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> florian: This is a diff feature. Hence its name is confusing, since it confused you about it. ^_^<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> nigel: Ah right, so this is more about expending the size in the block direction<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> nigel: But line-padding did come up as a similar topic in the thread, as a possible direction to think about things together.<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> nigel: Not sure they shoudl be, they seem distinct to me<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> Rossen_: So I see line-fit, inline-fit, inline-area<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> Rossen_: Then a long list from twtiter<br>
&lt;Rossen_> box-decoration-fill, line-height-sizing, inline-background-painting, inline-logical-height-sizing, line-stretch or inline-stretch, inline-cross-direction-sizing, inline-fill-type, inline-box-sizing, line-sizing, vertical-sizing-rule, line-fill or line-fit<br>
&lt;Rossen_> TabAtkins: suggest we avoid the word inline<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> florian: That's also the trick, it's not about "the line". It's about the block direction of inlines.<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> TabAtkins: Right, I just meant "line" was okay re: my objection.<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> faceless2: This feels similar to leading, could use that in the name.<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> Rossen_: Do we have other terms of art we could try to borrow?<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> astearns: 'leading' seems fair game in this<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> fantasai: It's not about leading - it doesn't affect layout.<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> fantasai: It just changes the size of the bg/border area of inline boxes, in the block direction.<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> fantasai: Other thing to consider is possible future directions for this property.<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> fantasai: So ultimately it'sa bout the height of the inline box<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> fantasai: So we might want to change how we fit around text<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> fantasai: Right now it's just "fit the text" or "fit the line".<br>
&lt;Rossen_> q?<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> Rossen_: Is layout not in scope for this property, then?<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> florian: inline-paint-height?<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> Rossen_: inline-background-extent?<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> fantasai: It affects all the box properties, in terms of where they apply graphically.<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> fantasai: Amelia created some nice illos<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> florian: I think "inline-*-extent" would have the same confusion<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> fantasai: I liked inline-fit because it does describe how it actually works. So like "inline-fit" or "line-fit" or something else?<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> florian: At some point Amelia proposed box-decoration-*, I assume we're not doing that?<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> fantasai: That implies more general. It's super long for one.<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> florian: inline-box-decoration-height? A mouthful...<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> jfkthame: inline-box-height?<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> Rossen_: That'll excite people - it says layout to me.<br>
&lt;tantek> better than inline-block-height<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> faceless2: *-shape, we kinda use that elsewhere?<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> Rossen_: Shape implies geometry, not just size.<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> fantasai: I feel like this is something we come back to during a break, after people ahve some time to think about it.<br>
&lt;tantek> +1 come back to it during a break<br>
&lt;fantasai> inline-box-fit?<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> Rossen_: Sounds good, we got awareness on the issue.<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> Rossen_: So we'll continue discussion during the break.<br>
&lt;dholbert> maybe "decoration" is fine after all; it was making me think "text-decoration", but now I'm remembering we have box-decoration-break etc. as well<br>
