@ausi Thinking again about your example, I think it might not be as much of a problem as I initially though: technically, it's still an issue, but:
* this uses 1D **block-direction** size containment, but the thing that authors are mostly calling for for container queries is 1D **inline-direction** size containment
* This example relies on how block direction percentage padding resolve against the inline dimension, but the opposite isn't true, so I don't think this example has an equivalent with axes flipped.

So, maybe axis agnostic 1D size containment isn't possible, but maybe 1D *inline-direction size containment is?

Well, we still have the problem of scrollbars, but that is a more tractable one. Or are there more situations where this breaks?
