[CSSWG][css-writing-modes] Updated CR of CSS Writing Modes Level 3

The CSS WG has published an updated Candidate Recommendation of the
CSS Writing Modes Module Level 3:


CSS Writing Modes Level 3 defines CSS handling of various international
writing modes, such as left-to-right (e.g. Latin or Indic), right-to-left
(e.g. Hebrew or Arabic), bidirectional (e.g. mixed Latin and Arabic) and
vertical (e.g. Asian scripts).

This update fixes a bunch of problems found in the previous specification,
which resulted in a small number of fairly substantive changes. Major ones

   * Dropping 'sideways-left' and 'sideways-right' from 'text-orientation',
     assigning the 'sideways-right' definition to 'sideways'.
   * Adding 'sideways-lr' and 'sideways-rl' keywords to 'writing-modes'.
   * Dropping the 'use-glyph-orientation' value in favor of aliasing the
     SVG glyph-orientation properties to 'text-orientation'.

All substantive changes are listed at:
