Points to consider:

- Resizing affects the size of the box and thus its relation with other items on the page. Whether it can grow in any particular direction is largely a function of that layout, so making it relative to the containing block makes sense.
- Resizing is often used to allow the user to create a larger area for editing text, and in that case what matters is the contents, so relative to the element itself makes sense.
- Resize works by modifying the preferred size properties, whose logical counterparts are resolved relative to the element itself, maybe we want to be consistent with that.

Can't say I find any of these arguments particularly convincing one way or another, so I don't have much opinion. Agenda+ to ask the WG.
