Reminder to the editors: the CJK / i18n issues of this mail (points 2, 4 & 6) have not yet been responded to or listed as issues in the spec.  Also point 4 and 7 include CJK examples (if you need extra motivation, 4 has a little easter egg in it).

This is not very advanced stuff, and I hope Richard's call for input will turn up much more, but it is something.

Also point 5 was responded to (See here http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2014Dec/0183.html), but didn't make it to the spec.
