Thank you for your feedback. The CSSWG resolved to remove display: run-in from the CSS 2.1 specification[1]. We will be reevaluating this feature for a future versions of CSS. 

Resolution to remove display: run-in from CSS 2.1 was covered in the meeting of 2011-01-26, http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2011Jan/0644.html

Please respond before 14 March, 2011 if you do not accept the current resolution.
