What I am proposing is that 'closest-*' acts, in effect, as 'closest-opposing-*', although I don't really think a keyword name change is needed. To me, this makes the side/corner uses of <bg-position>  (the primary reason for having <bg-position>) doubly as useful as what the draft currently has, while removing an non-useful and unintuitive behavior that is not present in 'farthest-*'.

I'm specifically proposing adding a new keyword(s?) to handle this
case in level 4.
