Heya WG, we just finished off all the outstanding edits for the
Display spec, including most of the WG resolutions from the last
several months of meetings. (We haven't done the element-box-fragment
edits yet.)

Additional changes:

* Defined blockification and inlinification of display types
<http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-display/#transformations>, formerly
CSS2.1 section 9.7. This seems to be the right place to put it.

* Renamed 'display-box' to 'box-suppress' and added a "hide" value,
which suppresses layout but still generates boxes for
animation/counters/etc. We're open to better names.

* Did some editorial work on the 'display-*' properties.

* Made a glossary of common, important terms that are currently buried
in CSS 2.1 <http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-display/#glossary>. These will
now auto-link in Bikeshed.

* Folded in fantasai's run-in proposal (per WG resolution
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2014Feb/0053.html), and
addressed bz's feedback as best we could

There are still some open issues, but we'd appreciate review of the
above sections and would like to discuss these changes and publish an
updated Working Draft on an upcoming call.
