'over' and 'under' also take into account the 'writing-mode',
except they do so in a way that handles Mongolian better.

The case of "only two lines" isn't really a significant consideration
in CSS-based documents. :) I think it's fine for TTML to have 'outside',
it makes more sense for their use case. I would probably suggest not
using TTML-only behavior as the default, though.
