It's useful? Take, for example, a row of buttons. You might wish to make 
a given button big enough to click it easily, but you still want your 
buttons to give way for unusually elaborate labels. With a min-width in 
percent you can make the buttons proportional to the containing block, 
which is very desirable for fluid layouts.
