Thanks, I merged the paragraph. 95% is not too bad!
About the spatial dimension, I commented that I left it out because I don't believe it is supported across main browsers for now. That said, the Media and Entertainment IG may want to bring browser vendors attention to the fact that there are valid use cases for cropping, in which case it would be worth calling this out in this overview document.
