Thank you for your feedback. The CSSWG has addressed your concerns in the upcoming publication of the CSS 2.1 specification[1]. 

The CSSWG resolved to  update the computed value for top/left/bottom/right to the following:

| Computed value: if specified as a length, the corresponding absolute
| length; if specified as a percentage, the specified value; otherwise, 'auto'.

We hope this closes your issue.

Please respond before 18 March, 2011 if you do not accept the current resolution.
