> The scope of this spec is very large, and goes to great depths in some areas, while shallow in others. I suggest splitting out the script- or language-specific issues into separate modules. This will also allow us to address other languages, like Mongolian, in the future.

I think you are right about the overall size of the spec [1]. If it was broken down into smaller chunks, then each one could advance independently, and some of it could probably get done quicker. I think one natural place to divide it would be to put all the wrapping/breaking/hyphenating stuff into one separate spec, and call it "CSS3 Text Breaking". That would include sections 4-7 (White Space Processing, Line Breaking and Word Boundaries, Hyphenation, and Text Wrapping).

The remainder could be broken into "CSS3 Text Aligning & Spacing" (which would also include "edge effects") and "CSS3 Text Decoration".
