Sorry, rather I wanted to mention 'special-action' because it precedes 'action'
that comes from the display-buffer call (that then could specify just
display-buffer-at-bottom instead of display-buffer--maybe-at-bottom).

Yes, still not perfect.  Maybe then use just one alist entry with more
possible values whose names clearly indicate where they are applied like

below - bottom
above - top
left - leftmost
right - rightmost

The first column is relative to the selected window,
the second column is relative to the main window.
