I think you're misunderstanding me here.

Shiny-27 is outline-radius.
Shiny-15 is border-radius.

Do you mean such as, should 'box-decoration' affect whether or not the online box is rounded at the break as with blocks, and if not (or by default), should it be rounded there, by border-top-right-radius and border-bottom-right-radius in ltr text?

I say yes and yes. But I think we resolved to leave it undefined for bidi.

I disagree. Having something that looks like a round peg in a square hole means having something that looks broken. Fixing it is more important than just layering on some new shiny.
