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

== [css-sizing-3] Cleanup wording around available size "being" a constraint ==
Flexbox says that available sizes can *be* a "min/max-content constraint" (and Sizing carries that notion into its definition of available size). But nothing ever mentions what this means.

What we probably meant is that in such a case, anything that tries to use the available size in a calculation instead reverts to sizing under a min/max constraint. But that's not stated anywhere. It also might be the case that every situation that wants this is already specifying "if sized under a min/max siznig constraint..." and thus doesn't need this additional level of indirection.
