It seems that the document on w3c's site hasn't been updated, but I see the
update in the github repo. You probably forgot to sync the two documents in
this commit:

Sorry, but I don't think so. Maybe something like, this level of the spec
dose not define any additional mechanism to automatically compute the font
size according to ruby properties or content of ruby annotations.

I meant that it might be better to mention in the Ruby Font Size section in
addition that font-size: 50% in the default style sheet is not normative,
and the font size of annotation is actually impl-dependent. But I feel that
impl-dependent behavior is evil for web standard. I'm not quite sure what
should happen here.
