@FremyCompany you're right, I was a bit quick replying to @dbaron, and missed the "and anything editable".

My understanding was that switching to a text cursor over "anything editable" was doable in the UA stylesheet (`:read-write { cursor: text; }` for browsers that support that, or a more exhaustive list of things for those that don't), and that we therefore wanted to move to doing that, so the spec and the test reflect that (and we have an old resolution for that somewhere, which I'll dig out if that's helpful).

At the same time, since we have more interop on `auto` meaning `text` over editable things, I'm OK with changing the spec if that's what implementers want.

As for your test, it looks correct, but I'd split it in 4 (2x2) tests:
* separate the places where we expect `auto` to look like `text` from those where it is expected to look like `default`, for ease of testing
* separate the uses of `apperance:none`, as that's only defined in level 4, and I don't think we want to make level 3 tests fail because of properties of level 4.
