https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [css-text-decor] Add `auto` value for text-decoration-skip: ==
I'd like to pick up and second [Theresa's 
proposal](https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2014Feb/0485.html)
 to add an `auto` value to the
[text-decoration-skip](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-text-decor-3/#text-decoration-skip-property).

Quoting from the [original 
post](https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2014Feb/0485.html):

> The initial value of `text-decoration-skip' is currently `objects'.
> However, the default platform text decoration behavior on OS X and 
iOS
> is equivalent to `ink'. We'd like to be able to match the system
> behavior by default in WebKit.
> 
> I propose we add an `auto' value to `text-decoration-skip'. While 
its
> definition would give UAs broad leeway, the spec should have a
> non-normative note encouraging UAs to match platform conventions for
> `auto'.
> 
> Once `text-decoration-skip: auto' is defined, we should change the
> initial value of `text-decoration-skip' to be `auto'.

A quick check in Safari shows that the value of 
`webkit-text-decoration-skip:` is now `auto` by default, and none 
disables it.
