That is, this change would still break content, but we're making the APIs more consistent and providing means to fix this broken content.   

Will you (or someone else at Google who's familiar with the proposal) be at TPAC? It'd be nice if you could join the CSSWG meeting and walk the group through the proposal and the open issues.

If not, we can still work on it via mail / github, but that could be a good opportunity to kick start things.
