I quote Carl's words:

"So offset applies to the *estimated* position, and then the spacing engine works on the offset+estimated postion and ends up putting things where it thinks they belong"

I checked that with the examples made before and it seems absolutely true.

Then: you have to offset an estimated position. How could you do that if you don't know this estimated position?

What is "proper behavior" for \offset to you?  It is my understanding
\offset works precisely as documented, but that is a worthless metric if
the documented behavior is not what people need of a tool.
