That's reasonable.  Is a calc() expression acceptable for handling
this, as you and I used in our examples?  So that, frex, calc(200px +
1fl) would trigger the obvious additive behavior, starting from 200px

David and I discussed having min-width/height trigger this, but
thought it might be too weird at the time, and I think I feel more
strongly about it being weird now.
