The initial value of `text-decoration-skip' is currently `objects'.
However, the default platform text decoration behavior on OS X and iOS
is equivalent to `ink'. We'd like to be able to match the system
behavior by default in WebKit.

I propose we add an `auto' value to `text-decoration-skip'. While its
definition would give UAs broad leeway, the spec should have a
non-normative note encouraging UAs to match platform conventions for

Once `text-decoration-skip: auto' is defined, we should change the
initial value of `text-decoration-skip' to be `auto'.
