Clock edges are normally referred to as such and have rising and falling
edges, please don't invent new terminology. In general this is using
really strange language which makes it hard to follow. Note also that
except for modes where clocks need to be exactly synchronized like left
justified the important thing is usually when the data can be sampled.
It takes time for changes to propagate so there's a distinction between
setting a state and when the state is looked at.

Please make it clear that this is the official spec (there must be a
better link for it, this was literally the first hit on Google).

This is unclear - what does "directly after" mean? Is it the clock
after or do you mean that the data signal needs to change at the same
time as the falling edge of the LRCLK? It should be the latter.

Neither of these is really true, both things are undefined behaviour
(this is how TDM works). Transmitters can send anything or tristate and
it doesn't make much practical difference what happens on the recieve
side unless there's TDM.

Again, this is unclear - what is "right before"? The final bit needs to
be sent on the BCLK edge preceeding the LRCLK transition.

LRCLK needs to rise before BCLK, it's good to do it on the preceeding
falling edge such that the timing is as relaxed as possible for the
reciever but not 100% a requirement.

It can be sampled...

This isn't a stereo format, there can be any number of channels.
