That is the default behaviour for most block elements!

However, if you want to specify a minimum width or height, there is
already a property for minimum width (I haven't checked for minimum
height).  To me this even sounds more understandable than setting a
fixed size then overriding the overflow property.

Your property would need to have height and width variants.
