Hi fantasai et al.,

I see the following issues:

- the problem statement below indicates "[over/under/left/right] is
redundant and painful for authors". Doesn't 'before'
and 'after' solve this issue since they automatically take into
account writing direction?

- TTML2 defines the 'auto' and 'outside' keywords, which, presumably,
have been found to be useful, but are not included in CSS
text-emphasis-position. Does CSS WG believe these keywords are not
useful and/or harmful?

Apologies for not being more explicit.

Best,

-- Pierre
