'text-script'

   | auto
   |       *Use the first character descendant*, after any
   |       reordering due to character direction and bi-
   |       directionality, which has an unambiguous script
   |       identifier to determine the dominant script of
   |       the element's content. *This determines the
   |       computed script value.* Each textual component of
   |       the element may however behave in typographical
   |       related behaviors as dictated by its script
   |       identifier. In the absence of any textual
   |       components with a clear script identifier (or no
   |       textual content at all), the computed value is
   |       'Latin'.
   |
   | none
   |       Indicates the script is *unknown or is not
   |       significant* to the proper formatting of this
   |       element.
   |
   | <script>
   |       A script definition in conformance with
   |       [ISO15924]. *All textual components of the
   |       element must behave in typography related
   |       behaviors as dictated by this script value, not
   |       the inherent script value of these textual
   |       components.*

How can 'auto' and <script> act differently on a run of
non-dominant-script text when 'auto' computes to a <script>
and this computed value is what's inherited?

How would one handle these situations?
