Same thing I was going to suggest  that the spec should read:

	# That when an element is set to absolute it should be placed at the top/0 of the line box if top or bottom is set to auto. It should be placed in the same place it would have been in the flow if left or right is set to auto.

On the other two issues I will open bugs against Blink and Mozilla accordingly.

Thanks,
Greg
