[css-writing-modes] Atomic inline "capable" of providing its own baseline

I understand what is intended here, but only based on prior knowledge. 
This text does not help determine whether a particular atomic inline is 
capable of proving its own baseline information.

Also, the "capable of proving its own" wording is a bit weird, as if 
inline boxes were sentient beings.

I suggest replacing the quoted text with:

> Unless specified otherwise, the baseline information for an atomic
