It might be nice if any shorthand was explicit about the use case that it's solving:

```
contain: query-target;
```

I think I like the HTML option in addition to (but not in place of) a way to set query targets in CSS, though I would strongly prefer an attribute that could go on any element. So `contain="inline|block"` that could go on a `<div>` or an `<article>` or a `<p>` or whatever, but not a whole new `<container>` element that forces you to lose those other semantics and/or wrap things for styling purposes.
