Okay, folding in the simplification I talked about in my previous comment, along with the clarification to handle @fantasai's margin/padding point:

> Sometimes the size of a percentage-sized box’s <a>containing block</a>
> depends on the [=intrinsic size contribution=] of the box itself,
> creating a cyclic dependency.
> When calculating the <a>intrinsic size contribution</a> of such a box
> (including any calculations for a content-based <a>automatic minimum size</a>),
> a percentage value that resolves against a size
> in the same axis as the [=intrinsic size contribution=]
> is resolved specially:

We won't commit this to the spec quite yet, but we think it'll do what we need while being much more straightforward to interpret and adjudicate, like @dbaron wants.
