I think Chrome matches the spec here[1] but firefox's behavior is better[2], so we should change the wording of [transferred size suggestion](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-flexbox-1/#transferred-size-suggestion) from

> If the item has a preferred aspect ratio and its **computed cross size property is definite**

to something like

> If the item has a preferred aspect ratio and its **outer cross size is definite**

Which matches the wording in 9.8 and makes clear that items with definite sizes imposed by the 9.8 rule qualify for the transferred size suggestion.

[1] The _computed cross size property_ in the example above is not definite, which means there is no transferred size suggestion.

[2] Because Chrome's behavior in https://jsfiddle.net/dgrogan/jd76er1y/ is gross. One image has its aspect ratio respected but the other confusingly doesn't. In Firefox both images have their aspect ratio respected.
