FWIW, I agree with Kawabata-san that the pairing of ruby should be
defined in both specs. CSS needs to define it for layout purposes,
even if the markup is not <ruby> markup. HTML needs to define it
for semantic purposes, even if CSS is not used. Speech for example
is a rendering of HTML ruby markup that does not use CSS layout.

Yes, this creates the potential for divergence between the HTML
and CSS specs. The editors of these specs must be diligent to
prevent that from happening. But also, if the specs diverge it
means that there is something to look at more closely, since at
least one of them is not correct. Therefore writing the pairing
algorithm twice can be a benefit, and hopefully implementors
will help us to notice any such discrepencies and fix them.
