In http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/visuren.html#position-props all four  
properties have the same note that suggest positioning for inline elements  
is against something other than the padding edge. When you actually look  
at the containing block definition  
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/visudet.html#containing-block-details this  
appears to be untrue. (It was true in a previous version of CSS 2.1 when  
inline level was against the content edge.)

I suggest to simply remove all four non-normative notes as they are  
confusing at this point.
