Sylvain, so can I understand the issue is that the 'writing-mode' property being a real (non-shorthand) property, rather than whether it affects the 'direction' property or not?

If my understanding is correct, I can propose that we rename the 'writing-mode' property to something else (like 'block-progression'), and then make the 'writing-mode' a shorthand for the property and the 'text-orientation' property.

What the 'writing-mode' property is a shorthand for changes from 2003 CR. Do you see any compatible issues with this approach?
