Oh, sorry, probably my English skill problem. He said the use case difference is marginal and wanted to "give room for implementations," which I understood UA dependent.

If the use case difference is marginal, I do not see a good reason for WebKit Mac to change the already implemented behavior.

I also wonder how good "always use 1em height" is for Latin upright text.

What did I miss?
