dyacob has just created a new issue for 
https://github.com/w3c/typography:

== Clarification Suggestion on Prevalent Space Symbol for Ethiopic ==
In section 
[3.3.2.5](http://w3c.github.io/typography/#justification_ethi), the 
statement: "...although modern documents sometimes use a regular 
space..." implies that "regular space" would be less common than 
Ethiopic wordspace in modern practices -which is _not_ the case. 
Regular space is the prevalent separator for most classes of 
literature since at least the 1960s if not earlier.  Rephrasing 
suggestions:

"...although modern documents will predominantly use a regular 
space..."

"...although modern documents will most often use a regular space..."

"...although modern documents will generally use a regular space..."
