A few key comments from that other issue:

It would be easy to say that `auto` resolves based on the parent content language, and I think we should definitely at least do that.

The next consideration is whether we want to get the `q { quotes: inherit; }` behavior required to get consistent quoting conventions through multiple levels of quotation. Given that `auto` inherits as itself, it would require some other keyword (like the `match-parent` keyword we have added to `text-align`) to resolve the computed value to a specific quoting convention.
