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

== [css-align] baseline content-alignment shouldn't be able to change intrinsic sizes ==
The [section on baseline content alignment](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-align/#baseline-align-content) ends with the sentence:

> This can increase the intrinsic size of the box.

It's not clear how this is supposed to work, for two reasons:
* intrinsic sizes are a function of the content and styles of a box and its descendants, whereas the amount of size change needed for baseline alignment depends on other elements in the baseline-sharing group
* it seems like there's a potential for loops here, although I haven't thought this through
