r12a asked for an update on the status of various i18n-related CSS specs,
so here's a rundown of where we're at afaict:

CSS Writing Modes Level 3 - stable
   * Goal to get to REC by the end of this year
   * Draft implementation report:
   * Koji and I will review test failures later this week,
     fix tests and/or implementations to the extent we reasonably can

CSS Writing Modes Level 4 - stable
   * Blocked on 2nd implementations of new features,
     e.g. of sideways-rl/sideways-lr

CSS Text Decoration Level 3 - stable
   * Spec is quite stable and up-to-date.
   * Most features have implementations, but spec isn't well-tested
     -> needs QA ownership / efforts

CSS Text Decoration Level 4 - exploring
   * Outstanding actions for fantasai to update the spec with resolutions
     and merge in all of the Level 3 prose.
   * Overall seems to be in the mid-WD “Revising” stage [1]
   * Some implementations of some features.
   * It's maybe possible to get to CR, optimistically-speaking, end of 2020,
     if this is a priority.

CSS Logical Properties 1 - refining
   * A few gnarly problems around shorthands, otherwise not too many issues
   * Widely implemented
   * Needs resolving the gnarly issues + a moderate amount of editing work
     (2-5 days) to clear out current issues list

CSS Text Level 3 - refining
   * Goal to get to CR by the end of this year
   * Florian and I are triaging issues, will send a more detailed report soon

CSS Text Level 4 - exploring
   * Mostly in the “Experimental” early-WD phase. ∴ Can't give any estimates.

CSS Counter Styles Level 3 - stable
   * REC needs a 2nd implementation in addition to Gecko
   * Antenna House claims support for most features; need to run it through
     the test suite.

CSS Lists Level 3 - refining
   * Tab and fantasai recently completed a thorough update of the spec,
   * It is now a fairly reliable as a basis for implementation
   * Open issues primarily around more exact marker positioning rules
     and integration with HTML reversed numbering
   * i18n should review https://www.w3.org/TR/css-lists-3/#marker-side

CSS Inline Layout Level 3 - exploring
   * Major layout spec -> multi-year intensive project.
   * fantasai intends to prioritize this over the next few years (currently
     trying to solicit funding) now that Grid and Flexbox are mostly done
   * strong interest from authoring community, especially leading controls

CSS Ruby Level 1 - revising
   * Somewhat complex layout spec
   * Fair pile of issues that need triage / resolution / editing, but
     nothing earth-shattering
   * Behind due to focus on other layout specs
   * Gecko has an implementation; Antenna House also claims some support
