Koji, Elika,

There are now many small but important changes between the spec
http://www.w3.org/TR/css-writing-modes-3/
and editor's draft
http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-writing-modes-3/

"Extent" and "measure" as abstract concepts have been dropped ... but 
are still displayed in fig. 19 of Example 12 btw:
http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-writing-modes-3/#example-30ac251e

Many changes (words, sentences, arrangements) also in section 7.3.2.

Are you planning an update-refresh release of the spec ?

---------

"
inline size
     A measurement in the inline dimension: refers to the physical width 
(horizontal dimension) in horizontal writing modes, and to the physical 
height (vertical dimension) in vertical writing modes.
"
6.1. Abstract Dimensions
http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-writing-modes-3/#abstract-axes

The physical height (vertical dimension) in vertical writing modes seems 
to mean that it will include margin, border and padding but this 
definition does not specifically state this; "physical height" is rather 
vague. Only after checking in developer tools (Web inspector) did I 
realize this was the case.
