Jonathan,

Shouldn't the spec wording/writing/edition in sections 7.3, 7.3.1 and 
7.3.2 be improved or clarified (and exemplified accordingly) first on 
such issue?

I am convinced the spec wording or edition or sentences could be 
improved.

In my case, I have huge difficulties in understanding what those 
sentences are trying to say. With regards to the sizing phase of 
auto-height blocks, I never reached your conclusion that div#vertical-rl 
in my Orthogonal-flow-Example14 test should shrink-wrap.
