Agreed.

You lost me on the increasing order of strictness.  In what way would 'avoid-column' be "more strict" than 'avoid-turn'?  And in what way would 'avoid-turn' be "more strict" than 'avoid-page'?

Or are you just referring to the fact that, for a given amount of content, restricting it to a column is less likely to succeed than restricting it to a pair of facing pages?  But then I would expect your ordered list to be "auto | avoid-turn | avoid-page | avoid-colunm"...?

If you're suggesting there should be an inherent weighting of the values (that is, that the UA should somehow 'try harder' to satisfy one than the other), could you elaborate a bit further?

Best wishes,

Melinda
