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

== [css-inline] inline-sizing property name is too similar to inline-size ==
CSS Inline currently defines an [`inline-sizing` property](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-inline-3/#line-fill) that changes how the height of inline boxes is calculated.

The name is a problem because we have an unrelated [`inline-size` property](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-logical-1/#propdef-inline-size) for declaring width or height based on the logical writing-mode.

As far as I know, there are no implementations of `inline-sizing`. There are definitely implementations of `inline-size`.

So this issue is to bikeshed a new name for the property [as described in the spec](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-inline-3/#inline-box-dimensions).

(Note that I personally do not understand enough about inline layout to interpret that description, so I cannot offer any good suggestions. Only that it shouldn't be the same as another property with a grammatical tense change. If someone is able to draw some pretty pictures demonstrating how this property would affect layout, that might help other people come up with name suggestions!)
