I suggest


Looser and Loose are not good terms because they are not typical 
antonyms to Strict, and in a typographic setting the term loose usually 
applies to spatial relationships (e.g. loose letter spacing, loose line 
spacing) rather than something like linebreak logic.

I don't think using names associated with particular media is a good 
idea, especially not media that might become obsolete long before CSS 
does. :)
