^ A few of us were talking about anchored positioning in the context of various classes of popups. It could be interesting to have some platform-enabled automatic anchoring that could take into account both writing mode and available space to render said anchored element, in order to mimic how some rendering engines position popup parts of native elements like `<select>`.

If there's interest in creating a new keyword set around positioning, component libraries indicate that level of control would likely be desirable to authors. Some components provide mechanisms to customize the direction in which the popup is displayed in relation to the activating element. Literal positioning (`top-center`) and logical positioning (`block-start-center`) both seem relevant.
