Yes. The min/max-size properties are basically defined as:
   1. Do layout ignoring them, use just the size property.
   2. If layout violates the max-size, redo layout using the max-size as the size.
   3. If layout violates the min-size, redo layout using the min-size as the size.

Of course, an implementation won't actually do that. But that's how
they're defined.
