Just wanted to give an update, we're very close to wrapping up the last few 
issues on css-text-3. I'm hoping we can publish a CR soon. (Granted, I've been 
hoping that for a very long time now.)

There's not been many significant changes since November. However, there is 
one major change that concerns i18n: We redrafted the line break 
transformation rules against a list of Unicode Blocks. I think this is 
actually going to give better results than the existing text. However. We do 
need review over the list of affected blocks.

The current draft is here:
The two interesting questions we found were wrt enclosed ideographics:

There's also the original issue, of how to handle "ambiguous" cases like 
quotation marks:
which I've refiled as

Please comment if you have thoughts on these issues.
