"But rather than actually calculating the dimensions of that
hypothetical box, user agents are free to make a guess at its probable

What's not to like? :)

If anyone still cares about Presto, I can tell you that its flexbox
implementation follows the spec here.

If there are no good use cases for this (I cannot think of any), it's
pretty unimportant how it's specced, but it would be nice if it is
well-defined (it already is) and as simple as possible.
