Those are interesting points...

The script specific settings are not mutually exclusive. They allow to 
select a font based on the script type, so the same paragrapg can use a 
different font for Chinese (asian script type) text than it uses for 
Arabic (complex script type). The overall feasibility of default fonts 
however is something that I am not sure about.

There is no text:shadow, so I assume you mean fo:text-shadow, which is 
in fact something different than style:shadow. The former controls a 
shadow effect for characters, while the latter controls the shadow of an 
object (which may contain characters with another shadow effect), e.g. a 
page or a frame. The default for both of these should be to have no shadow.

The short forms probably should not get a default. Their default would 
rather be reflected by the defaults of their individual components.

I am not sure about the writing directions, but I think our defaults are 
OK as long as they are consistent. In general, whenever there is 
potential for conflicting attributes we must make a choice and write 
that down in the spec. From an interoperability point of view, an 
application is free to disagree with out choice as long as it says so in 
the files it produces.
