Description:
7.4.4 Cursive Scripts
http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-text-3/#justify-cursive

"Justification must not introduce gaps between visually-perceived letters of cursive scripts such as Arabic."

I guess that to be pedantic that ought to say 'between joined visually-perceived letters'.

"If it is able, the UA may translate space distributed to justification opportunities within a run of such visually-perceived letters into some form of cursive elongation for that run."

I don't really understand the meaning of "translate space distributed to justification opportunities". Is there a typo there?

"It otherwise must assume that no justification opportunity exists between any pair of visually-perceived letters in cursive script."

Again, I think this should refer to 'joined' letters only, since gaps produced by letters that don't join to the left appear to be a legitimate target for justification in some cases (in conjunction with inter-word spacing).
