Thanks David for your links. They prove that evolution indeed is sort of
spiral.

I've got ideas exlained there.
But situation is slightly different at this time: min/max'es already here.

Seems like the only way we can follow now is to declare cascading rule for
width as:

if 'width' is defined in the style definition it overrides previous value
*and discards min and max values set in previous styles in the cascading
order*

So authors if they want to use width with constraints will be forced to
override these three all together.
