Sounds okay, but will this be something which changes on the fly?
Or can be reapplied?
Say you have a scripted form field (a good example is a clock...) 
whose content can change length, how is this handled?

Why not have width: inside or something then?
auto sizes to fill to the parent block right?
This new type would fill to current content length...
Upon which one may specify bounds with min-width and max-width ?
