While at it, some other suggestions are:

1)  In section 4.1, in first paragraph, second sentence, it reads:

"However, it *could be sometimes hard* to specify the wrapping area identical (?) to the shape of a display.”

Maybe we could change it to:
"However, it *can be challenging* to specify the wrapping area *to be* identical to the shape of a display.”

2) The next sentence is:
"Thus, we add a new value 'display' to the 'shape-inside' property to facilitate it. When the 'shape-inside' property on an element is set to 'display', its content (or contained element) is aligned along the display border automatically."

What if we rephrase it to:
"To address such cases, 'shape-inside' is extended with a new value named 'display', such an element having this value will have its content (or contained elements) aligned along the display border automatically.”

3) Past figure 3, there is a paragraph with the following sentence:
Even though the shape of the rounded display could be described by circle() or ellipse () as <basic-shape>,  'shape-inside: display' is useful that authors make contents to be aligned with the display edge conveniently.
In case of complicated shaped displays like curved, stelliform, or polygonal shape, the availability of 'shape-inside: display' is more increased in comparison with a simple display (e.g. regular rounded display).

I feel could be streamlined to:
"This property is specially useful for complex shapes (e.g. curved, stelliform, polygonal), that wouldn't be covered by <basic-shape> (i.e. circle() or ellipse(), allowing web authors to conveniently align contents with the display edge.”

4) In figure 4, there is:
"Figure 4: Align *a* part of the content along the display border”

Maybe it could just omit the article i.e. "Figure 4: Align part of…".

If you all agree with these changes, I can submit a single merge request with it.
