I think my statement was indeed too general, and is only correct in 
the case of an auto-sized or fixed-size track. It's not true in flex- 
or percentage-sized tracks, or those with a minmax() function and 
insufficient grid container space to reach the max.

I don't think we should have stretching override the minimum specified
 by `min-width` or `min-height`, as it never does that. That should 
remain true whether `min-width` is set to a fixed size, a keyword like
 `min-content`, or `auto`. We can modify what `auto` means to the 
extent that it improves outcomes, but `stretch` shouldn't be special 
in its ability to override the minimum.

Currently the spec modifies the automatic minimum to accommodate fixed
 track sizes. It does this by reducing the automatic minimum 
size--regardless of the item's sizing or alignment properties--to fit 
within the fixed limits of the grid area. It might be nice to do this 
for e.g. flex tracks as well, but I fear this will complicate the 
sizing algorithm, as the result of flexing already depends on content 
sizes. I'm open to suggestions on how to make the automatic minimum as
 helpful and unsurprising as possible, but I also don't want to come 
up with some weird loopback algorithm in our attempt to do so!
