The XSL-FO spec states in 5.3.1 (2nd paragraph) that
   If the corresponding absolute property is not explicitly specified,
   then then the computed value of the absolute property is set to the
   computed value of the corresponding relative property.

However, most relative properties have components, and the corresponding
absolute properties are single values (border, margin, and padding)

The most appropriate component would be 'optimum', so setting f.e.
would not set any of

would set
because there is a clear one-on-one relation.
