[css3-layout] feedback about wording


RE: http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-template/

In the ABSTRACT section (early in the doc)...

The @region rule text... has odd structure, in my opinion. It currently 

The |@region| rule 
<http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-template/#region-based> [CSS3-REGIONS] 
<http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-template/#CSS3-REGIONS> allows to select 
(parts of) elements based on whether they fall in a certain slot or not, 
and thus style content differently in different slots (region-based 

I believe the 'allows to select' portion, should be changed to 'allows 
the selection of'

If I may be even more forward... I believe that the line could be 
further modified to loosely read as follows...

The |@region| rule 
<http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-template/#region-based> [CSS3-REGIONS] 
<http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-template/#CSS3-REGIONS> allows the 
selection of (parts of) elements based upon which slot(s) they fall 
into, include, or cross, and thus the content is styled differently 
(uniquely?) per those determinations/selections (region-based styling).

I haven't studied templates much at all. It was my beginning of doing 
that... that made me find this oddly-worded statement. I don't know, for 
example, IF the content of a single element... can cross/traverse 
slot-borders/delineations. If so, (and first taking into consideration 
any slot-overflow settings/rules if they exist)... what happens? That 
information might affect the wording of the definition of '@region'.

Just my opinion. :)

Okay, take care, gang!
