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

We resolved against doing that (twice already), because
1) There are many such context-based cursor changes, and they are not fully interoperable (although some are more than others), and going through the full list seems like a never ending task with countless nuances and exceptions
2) This can be done using the UA stylesheet, and does not need to use the `auto` value

So the cursor should look like the hand `pointer` over links, but it should do so because of the UA stylesheet, not because that's what the auto value does.

Cases that cannot be done through the UA stylesheet are what `auto` should be about. text vs non-text falls under that, and so does selectable text vs non selectable text. Editable or not is a bit fuzzy, since it is selectable, but not trivially so, and there seems to be interop anyway.
