cbiesinger has just created a new issue for 
https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [css-logical-props] percentages need better definition ==
https://drafts.csswg.org/css-logical-props/#propdef-min-block-size

That section (and others) says:
> Percentages:  block-size/inline-size, respectively, of containing 
block

However, this is a bit underdefined IMO:
- A strict reading of that line implies that a min-block-size 
percentage gets resolved to the parent's block-size property. However,
 if the parent has an orthogonal writing mode relative to the child, 
this property actually maps to the inline-size, right?

- Also, does this need a more explicit mention that percentages only 
resolve relative to definite sizes?
