The Working Group just discussed `How does max-lines interact with hidden content?`, and agreed to the following:

* `RESOLVED:  keep current definition such that we could all lines in overflow:clip descendant`

<details><summary>The full IRC log of that discussion</summary>
&lt;dael> Topic: How does max-lines interact with hidden content?<br>
&lt;dael> github: https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/2421<br>
&lt;dael> florian: This started much broader and we're almost done. Just a corner case we haven't decided explicitly.<br>
&lt;dael> florian: The broad topic is which lines tdo we count when w have max-lines and a decendent or BFCs or a child also with max-lines. We resolved we skip when you nest max-lines. Resolved for most of overflow. Remaining bit is overflow:clip<br>
&lt;dael> florian: overflow:clip is not a BFC so it implies you could the lines inline overflow:clip. I think close this with no more changes needed.<br>
&lt;dael> Rossen_: Is the issue different if overflow:clip is applied to max-lines container?<br>
&lt;dael> florian: This is on decendant<br>
&lt;dael> Rossen_: How different then when on max-line container?<br>
&lt;dael> florian: On container it doesn't do anything special and overflow not terribly relevent.<br>
&lt;dael> Rossen_: But then you can extract same thing happens with child.<br>
&lt;dael> florian: So you're okay no change?<br>
&lt;dael> Rossen_: Yes<br>
&lt;dael> astearns: WE could lines in decendant with overflow:clip, but only not overflowing?<br>
&lt;dael> florian: Count all the lines<br>
&lt;dael> Rossen_: Overflow:clip doesn't effect count of lines<br>
&lt;dael> florian: Right<br>
&lt;dael> astearns: Gotcha<br>
&lt;dael> astearns: Objections to keep current definition such that we could all lines in overflow:clip decendant?<br>
&lt;dael> fantasai: I think this is correct. Might be initially confusing but it's the right model<br>
&lt;dael> RESOLVED:  keep current definition such that we could all lines in overflow:clip descendant<br>
