Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-ui-3] auto cursor should behaves as default cursor except for text?

There's a bit of both. Firefox does more cursor changes than chrome via the UA style sheet, so some changes (like the pointer cursor over links) will be just matching Firefox. But Firefox still has some more magic built into the auto value than the spec calls for, so there we are in slightly more uncharted territory.

If we compat requires some aspect of cursor changing to be handled via `auto`, then this will have to be added to the spec. However, no such thing has been uncovered yet. Until then, the best would be for browsers to try to match the spec and only handle via `auto` things that cannot be handled otherwise, and to report back if that uncovers any web compat issue.
