Hi @r12a,
The cascading and value processing of logical properties is somewhat complicated and not entirely resolved, and also this spec is trying to transition to REC whereas logical properties is still WD, so I think using logical properties in this example would not be a good idea. (I think it *is* a good idea for examples in our various layout specs, though, where the processing model doesn't matter, only the input and end result.)

As for logical values like `start`, while we have clarity on what the computed value is, it's not entirely clear to me whether the “used value” is left or right, and that question while currently theoretical might end up being non-theoretical in the future, so I'd rather not lock it down one way or another with an example here. :)

So if you don't mind, I'd prefer to reject the suggestion against this particular example in Cascade. Though I'm quite open to using logical properties and values in our examples more generally.
Let me know if you find this acceptable~
