Well, Tab said it was "stable design-wise" and then implied that
he wanted to see someone shipping it:

I took that as an OK to ship it; did I misunderstand?

Only display:flow-root this time.
We have previously shipped display:contents and the ruby values
(and the obvious CSS2 values).  We have *not* implemented 'run-in'
yet though.  We only support the single-keyword form of 'display'.

AFAICT, the 'display' keywords we haven't implemented yet are:
   run-in, flow, inline-list-item
Is the spec for these stable enough to implement and/or ship?

I think we (Gecko) plan to implement 'inline-list-item'[1] at some point.

I'm not aware of any plans to implement 'display:flow', but it seems
kind of trivial (in its single-keyword form) so I don't see any reason
not to.

There's a (very old) bug filed on 'run-in' where someone said it was
*removed* from Chrome/Safari[2] - was that because authors weren't
very interested in this feature, or because of some other reason?
Are they interested in adding it again?
