I've drafted up a Disposition of Comments for the 2013 CSS Text Decoration CR:

There's a bunch of issues which have proposed edits that need review,
a few that are still open for discussion with no concrete proposal,
and some that are looking for i18n input. Those open for the CSSWG's
action are marked with =WG=, and those looking for i18n input are
marked =i18n= in the issues list.

A summary follows. Please review the list, and if you have input,
send it to us for consideration. :)

Issues that need further discussion:

   Issue 1: Allow UA to skip ink by default
   Proposed to handle this via UA stylesheet rather than initial value.

   Issue 25: New keyword to represent complex initial value of text-decoration-skip
   Proposed to accept, meaning might depend on #1.

   Issue 9: Clarify position of emphasis marks over auto-hidden ruby
   Needs further input from CJK community and implementers.

   Issue 10: Are there emphasis mark position preferences for Korean?
   Needs info from Korean community.

   Issue 11: Emphasis marks shouldn't apply to punctuation
   Needs further input from CJK community if changes are desired.
   See also https://drafts.csswg.org/css-text-decor-4/#text-emphasis-skip
   and view-source:https://drafts.csswg.org/css-text-decor-4/Overview.bs
   (which contains some comments).
   Follow-up to https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/839

   Issue 21: Interaction of text decoration, emphasis dots, & ruby
   Currently under discussion.

   Issue 22: CJK doesn't like skipping ink, shouldn't by default
   Currently under discussion, possibly a quality-of-implementation issue.

   Issue 25: Position of underline should depend on skipped things
   Needs CSSWG discussion.

Edits proposed (or issue rejected), need WG approval:

   Issue 10: Clarify whether emphasis marks are upright or sideways for sideways-rl/lr
   Proposed edits make them sideways, since these writing modes are
   intended to be effectively rotated horizontal text.

   Issue 13: Should emphasis marks use 'font-variant: ruby'?
   Proposed edits apply 'ruby' per Ken Lunde's recommendation.

   Issues 11, 18, 19: Improvements to default UA stylesheet suggestions
   Proposed edits to better handle nesting of languages and to avoid
   altering existing horizontal content.

   Issue 18: 'text-emphasis-position' requires too many arguments
   Proposed to make vertical-mode argument optional. Needs CSSWG
   approval and i18n to check assumptions. :)

   Issue 20: Update spec to handle sideways-lr/sideways-rl
   Proposed to make these behave exactly as rotated horizontal text,
   see https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2016Dec/0119.html

Issues rejected, need WG approval:

   Issue 5: text-shadow should apply to inline images
   Proposed to reject due to compat considerations

   Issue 14: 'text-emphasis' shorthand should not allow only <color>
   Rejected based on existing CSS syntactic patterns like 'border'.

Issues that were deferred:

   Issue 2: text-decoration-color vs SVG fills
   Deferred to FXTF Paint spec

   Issue 3: Allow specifying position and thickness of underlines
   Deferred to L4

   Issue 4: Allow arbitrary decorations
   Deferred to as-yet-unknown spec and/or never?
