The current spec leaves the limit undefined and up to the UA. Which means implementations could possibly set it to 0 to disallow all overhang, and this seem to be what Firefox does.

Interestingly, disallowing overhand altogether is the recommendation of Professor Kobayashi as a good enough solution for general use (see list item number 4 in https://w3c.github.io/jlreq/docs/simple-ruby/#placement-of-mono-ruby-0 for mono-ruby, list item number 4 in https://w3c.github.io/jlreq/docs/simple-ruby/#placement-of-group-ruby-0 for group ruby, and list item number 4 in https://w3c.github.io/jlreq/docs/simple-ruby/#placement-of-jukugo-ruby-0 for jukugo ruby).

If disallowing overhand always is not acceptable, and we do introduce a property, I would therefore suggest that the initial value be `auto` (i.e. up to the UA, possibly 0) or `0` rather than `1em`.
