I kinda like your proposal to (virtually) merge "display-outside" and 
"position" but I don't like the "position-offset" property. The "top" and 
"left" properties did the job for years in conjuction with "position: 
relative" and nobody has been confused about it yet. What about "position: 
relative inline;" and "position: relative block" that would act the same way 
as "display: inline/block; position: relative" now (using top/left as the 
offset source)?

If you want to "offset" the position of an element regardless of its 
"position" and "display" state, you can already use "transform: translate()" 
for that kind of use. In some cases, tweaking "margin" could do the trick, 
too. Why is there a need to introduce a new property here?
