Re: CSS Regions considered harmful (was: [css-regions] issue 16858 redux)

My primary point is that we should not abuse HTML tags as this is
harmful to web semantics. That's problems #1 and it should, alone, be
enough to stop the specification from progressing.

If problem #1 is fixed, we still have problems #2-#5. Those are not
quite as clear-cut, but my conclusion is that CSS Regions will create
more problems than they solve for web designers.
