I think we probably want the "Otherwise:" text  from the computed
value line to apply to the non-auto relative positioning case.

However, I wonder if all of these adjustments (except for what's in
the "Otherwise:" text) should be adjustments to the used value
rather than the computed value, so that they don't affect
inheritance.  I'm willing to guess that might be more consistent
with implementations.  (Do you have testcases?)
