The W3C has posted the first working draft of Requirements of Japanese Text Layout. "This document describes requirements for general Japanese layout realized with technologies like CSS, SVG and XSL-FO. The document is mainly based on a standard for Japanese layout, JIS X 4051. However, it addresses also areas which are not covered by JIS X 4051. The document is currently in draft stage. This public draft contains the Introduction and section 1 Basics of Japanese Text Layout. Further sections are available in a non-public version of the document and will be integrated into a further public Working Draft."
