   ... Only Emacs positions
   tooltips above the mouse. I think below is less likely to be in the
   way, since the pointer usually points upwards. So my suggestion would
   be to default to 

   (setq tooltip-x-offset 0)
   (setq tooltip-y-offset 40)

On my usual system, this and variations of it sometimes cover the menu
item and sometimes not.  On the `Tools' menu, for example, these
values lead to a tip that does OK with `Compile' but that covers up
part of `Ediff Miscellanea'.

But on a `plain vanilla' Emacs, started with

    emacs -q --no-site-file --eval '(blink-cursor-mode 0)'

the values lead to tips that never cover up their menu item.
