I'm happy to see that this is being discussed and that (whichever way we end up with) there will be a single place in CSS which defines this.

I agree that the fairly new `round()` function should track this.

I see in V&U that [combination of &lt;integer> says to round to positive infinity](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-values-4/#combine-integers) and although [combination of &lt;number> is silent on this](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-values-4/#combine-numbers). That doesn't really cover the case there a `number` is serialized to finite precision, unless that is thought of as conversion to integer and then conversion to a float-looking string by shifting the decimal point.

For now though CSS Color 4 can point to V&U for rounding, and need not copy over the ambiguous "rounding up" wording from CSSOM.
