I'd be remiss to not bring up @jensimmons comment about calc'n on top of aspect ratio behavior on the grid related issue...

Could it be possible to support this somehow with `calc()` in the `aspect-ratio` property? The only way I imagine this behavior would be covered, albeit using extra elements, [is if `box-sizing` being set to `content-box`](https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/4007), then offset the ratio size by using `padding`/`border` with a descendant was positioned accordingly?
