To my knowledge no. The editor for css3 overflow is David Baron. We had 
a discussion about another spec bug in late 2013 [1] [2]. Since we seem 
to be the only ones interested that there is not interoperable behaviour 
in respect to the bug, well there isn't much that can be done.

I wouldn't say that there is spec fragmentation but rather that CSS21 
still has a few bugs and not many of the CSS modules seem to not be able 
to address these bugs. They all are surrounding the CSS box model, the 
behaviour of floats, overflow/clipping and writing-mode.
