The current draft says:

If a loop is detected when following speak-as references, this value
is treated as auto.

Does it mean, if there is a chain like

A -> B -> C -> D -> C

then speak-as of all four styles should be auto? I propose that only
styles in loop treat the value as 'auto', so that in the example
above, C and D will have 'auto' for speak-as while A and B are still
spoken as C.

By this way, implementation is enabled to simply cache the effective
value after eliminating the loop, instead of tracking whether it
refers to a loop in addition.
