Hi everyone,

It was pointed out to me that 'left' / 'right' [1] in the Box
Alignment specification are not the physical directions but refer to
the line-relative ones, resp. line-left / line-right. AFAICT these are
new values in CSS Box Alignment, thus they could use the line-relative
values from writing-mode [2] to prevent this confusion. Did I miss
anything?

Thanks,
Julien
