Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-align] Compatible alignments aren't always compatible

The CSS Working Group just discussed `Compatible alignments aren't always compatible`, and agreed to the following resolutions:

* `RESOLVED: Such alignments that overflow will not participate in last baseline alignment`

<details><summary>The full IRC log of that discussion</summary>
&lt;dael> Topic: Compatible alignments aren't always compatible<br>
&lt;dael> github:<br>
&lt;dael> Rossen_: Can you summerie fantasai ?<br>
&lt;dael> fantasai: We opened this and resolved on some. The cases where you have a stretch item and a last basesline aligned. If you have content alignment you can alight stretch items. As lng as the stretching takes effect. If the stretching is constrained we resolved that since there's an explicit need to align to top or bottom t hat's fine. We're covered.<br>
&lt;dael> fantasai: If you have 2 end aligned things that norminally are last basseline content alignment, but if one is overflowing and safe alignment it would end up start aligned. So what do we do for that thing?<br>
&lt;dael> fantasai: Does everything shift down and do unsafe, do we bail where if you overflow we don't do baseline? We need to figure out and i don't have a clear proposal.<br>
&lt;dael> fantasai: You have 2 items, self align to the end. They have content baseline alignment. One of them happens to be bigger than the box, but has safe alignment so it'll overflow the bottom. What do we do?<br>
&lt;dael> fremy: I'm saying that i don' tknow if we need to baseline align It seems like an error. I'd be fine saying we don't baseline align and just give up.<br>
&lt;dael> Rossen_: You favor where baseline align is ignored?<br>
&lt;dael> fremy: Yes.<br>
&lt;dael> fremy: Yes, IRC is right.<br>
&lt;dael> Rossen_: fantasai do you ahve a strong opinion?<br>
&lt;dael> fantasai: Options are we perform las tbaseline alignment and treat all as overflow. Alternative is to say the overflow thing can't be last baseline.<br>
&lt;dael> Rossen_: And i think that second is what fremy was pointing out.<br>
&lt;dael> Rossen_: From impl PoV I would also favor the second. It would be good to hear from more people.<br>
&lt;dael> Rossen_: If there are no other opinions we can try and resolve or postpone to F2F with a whiteboard and more people.<br>
&lt;dael> Rossen_: Preference?<br>
&lt;dael> fantasai: I'm okay resolving to bail on baseline alignment and if this happens that item can't participate.<br>
&lt;dael> Rossen_: Fine to me. Prop: Such alignments that overflow will not participate in last baseline alignment. Obj?<br>
&lt;dael> RESOLVED: Such alignments that overflow will not participate in last baseline alignment<br>
