I doubt it's what you want to hear, but this might be the right time to align the CSS and XSL property sets, separating out the definitions Sebastian wants included into a document completely separate from both the CSS and XSL specs. Then both CSS3 and the XSL-FOs could incorporate them through linking mechanisms (XLink, entities, however) for the printed version, while ensuring that both use the same set of terms and descriptions of their results. Long term, of course, this would separate work on formatting properties from the syntax used to implement them. Seems like a good idea to me, though I'm not sure you'll be able to pull that off in a single meeting.
