@Loirooriol : Although it initially sounds like size containment could be useful on table cells, I agree with @FremyCompany and @tabatkins : this isn't something we can easily do. The way it would cause the table cell to overflow is undefined, and there's pretty much no willingness from browsers to try and define it, much less implement it. This was discussed before, and we concluded against it already (I was the one asking for it last time).

The conclusion of that discussion can be found [here on IRC](https://logs.csswg.org/irc.w3.org/css/2017-04-21/#e800774), and the broader issue of what contain does on table parts was tracked as [Issue 14 in the DoC preparing for CR](file:///Users/florian/src/csswg-drafts/css-contain/issues-2017.html#issue-14).

Unless you think there is anything new to be said about this topic, I'm going to close it with no change, as we have already resolved on the same thing with the same (as far as I can tell) arguments.
