Also, the text in the 'auto' definition that begins with "Note that"
doesn't belong in the definition of 'auto', it belongs in a paragraph
after the value definitions because it is general to the property.

I don't think 'visibility' should affect 'voice-volume'. It's explicitly
a visual control, and as has been mentioned before, while silence is
analogous to invisibility, it's not a useful behavior in the aural
dimension.
