Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-logical] Flow-relative syntax for `margin`-like shorthands (#1282)

I think it makes sense to set the `flow-mode` on an element instead of on a file. File settings aren't common in CSS like they are in JS and feel more arbitrary than setting `flow-mode` on a specific parent.

I feel that the example from @elad2412 makes the most sense in this case, with 

```
html{
   flow-mode:physical; 
       /*or*/
   flow-mode:logical;
}
```

I don't think this necessarily competes with `element.style.margin = "1px 2px 3px 4px";`. That would still be valid, inclusive of `flow-mode`.
