Are the margin-(inline-)start and related properties specified 
somewhere? (In WG-space or not.)

In particular, how do they cascade or otherwise interact with 
margin-top/right/bottom/left? Are they based on the 
direction/writing-mode properties like layout, or on document knowledge 
like the :dir() pseudo-class?
