1. The grammar is correct, it says that you can specify either clause in either order but the second one is optional. So you can specify `over left` or just `over`, but not just `left`. This forces expressing a preference for horizontal writing modes, where we don't have a clear default.

2. I'm not sure what your worry is here, so I can't address it. The browser will key off of language tags, which is probably the same as what would happen internally if we had an `auto` keyword, except that it helps prevent browsers from doing some kind of auto-detection based on the content.

3. `over` and `under` pretty much always mean the line-over and line-under sides, except in the case of underlines and overlines when `text-underline-position` is `over`.

4. This is exactly what the `over` and `under` keywords of `text-underline-position` mean. It's the `auto` keyword that's not really conforming, but that's normal for `auto`. ;)

Let me know if this addresses your concerns or if you have further comments here.
