Thank you for your feedback. The CSSWG has addressed your concerns in the upcoming publication of the CSS 2.1 specification[1]. 

The CSSWG resolved to  remove the mention of percentage intrinsic width/height from the CSS 2.1 spec.

We hope this closes your issue.

Please respond before 18 March, 2011 if you do not accept the current resolution.
