In today’s CSSWG meeting, we discussed the work you started in Inkscape on
flowing text into an arbitrary shape, and how that is or is not impacted
by our postponing shape-inside to level 2 of CSS Shapes.

I know we had an in-person conversation about this, but the only
written-down reference I could find was from a blog post of yours where I


My position there (and now) was that there shouldn’t be an issue with
working on shape-inside, because we intend to spec it out in CSS Shapes
level 2. We’ve been contributing shape-inside code to WebKit and Blink
alongside our level 1 work. I just think that we can make faster progress
by finishing what’s in level 1 (particularly with a second implementation
and a test suite) then working on the next level.

Does this work for you, or would you like to argue for pulling
shape-inside back into level 1?
