It's true that we should aim for CSS mapping, however we are not constrained only to include features with a CSS mapping (or indeed an XSL-FO mapping). Additionally I believe we have the option to request functionality from the CSS group if existing CSS functionality cannot meet our requirements.

For anyone suggesting a new feature in TTML, e.g., shrink text to fit region, it won't be of much benefit to do so if there isn't an existing CSS mapping, or at least not much benefit in the open web platform (native presentation processors can do what they want).

So before you consider proposing something that has no CSS mapping, think first about how to get it into CSS.
