To be able to do this implies a hand position more or less what you would need to play as in your 2nd definition, but that hand position in itself can still be used for playing off the left side of the nail, as e.g. Segovia did.
Yes on the first part, disagree on the last part. If the wrist is straight for 2.(I neglected to say) then it doesn't work for the Presti position. It's more of a thumb under lute position which someone referenced in a previous post.
