I like 'block-before' and 'block-after' as terms in the CSS spec, 
but as keywords in property names and values, 'before' and 'after'
are good enough, like 'padding-before' and 'padding-after'.
This is same as that the CSS Writing Modes defines 'line-left' and
'line-right' but the property values for those are 'left' and 'right'
(in text-align etc.)
