How do you sort when you have sums with different units? Like `min(1em + 1vw, 1lh + 1px)`, where `em < lh < px < vw`, so which argument goes first?

And about partial simplification, it may be problematic with percentages. It may seem `min(2em, 1%, 3%)` can be simplified to `min(2em, 1%)`, but percentages can resolve to negative values, so actually 3% may be smaller than 1%!
