I originally had a way to specify the axis; you could provide an
<angle> along with the position.  The use-case for it was *very* niche
for the complexity it brought, so I dropped it.

You can't currently limit which sides you're considering for the
closest/farthest-side keywords.  We can address that in the future,
but I believe it's niche enough that we don't need to worry about that
right now.  I'd rather not reopen any discussions for feature changes
unless I've very clearly gotten something majorly wrong.
