> Do web developers really think about "layout viewport" now? They are familiar with "client" coordinates presumably, and with "initial containing block" though not necessarily with that name. But I've never seen "layout viewport" used in a non browser-implementation context.

@pp-koch [has been teaching it under this name](https://vimeo.com/100523275) for a while now, and he has a bit of an audience.

[A bit of googling](https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&sxsrf=ALeKk03v0122JzcZP06YwiCZod9s4eadgw%3A1583889436264&ei=HDxoXqbbD4uDoAToubiYDw&q=css+%22layout+viewport%22&oq=css+%22layout+viewport%22&gs_l=psy-ab.3..0i8i30.3682.6129..6403...0.2..0.142.587.5j1......0....1..gws-wiz.......0i71j0j0i22i30j0i7i30j0i8i7i30.pstBqapcc70&ved=0ahUKEwim2dj5n5HoAhWLAYgKHegcDvMQ4dUDCAo&uact=5) suggests he's not alone using these words, with other sources including MDN or Jake archibald. Doesn't necessarily mean it is the dominant terminology, but it has some presence.
