Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-overflow] Which kind of boxes accept max-lines?

@fantasai and I considered that possibility, but we thought it was better not to skip:
* We did not think it would make a big difference in implementation complexity
* Counting lines in nested BFCs doesn't seem to introduce strange corner cases
* The various reasons block container get BFCfied did not seem to be particularly relevant to the issue of counting lines, do we expect authors will prefer it this way
* Authors can always turn their BFCs into some other kind of formatting contexts if they want to exclude them (e.g. a single item vertical flexbox)

For scroll containers, we were more on the edge. Many of the same arguments work to some extend, but seemed less convincing. For these, I could easily go either way, depending on use cases.
