And EPUB/WebKit is shipping a prefixed property with a different name.
If someone comes up with something brilliant, I'd appreciate a better
standard name, the current one isn't super clear imho. We had the
directional naming issue open for many many years with no hope, and
did eventually come up with a better solution.

Done.

It's marked at-risk because it wasn't in any of the EPUB profiles,
and thus has fewer implementations. Until MS implemented, we didn't
have any. I'm happy to remove if it's really a problem, but putting
things in the at-risk list isn't generally a problem.

Done.
