But with 'overflow-policy' there is just effect, without changing of computed values of 'overflow-x' or 'overflow-y' or creating shorthands with variable initial values or such. 

Sorry. The more I think about it, the more I realize this comment had to do with whether you would have 'overflow-y:fragment' or 'overflow-x:fragment' if you wanted a different value for the opposite direction.

If overflow:fragment is not practical for other reasons (which is disappointing, because it seems like such a beautiful idea), then I guess this doesn't matter, and 'overflow-inline' and 'overflow-stacking' (or whatever we're using for padding-, border-, and margin-) would be fine.

Sorry for sounding flustered on the call today. I wasn't well prepared for speaking about this, and there was an echo, and I kept forgetting property names such as 'writing-mode'.
