Dear all,

After reading the spec, and playing around with some code, I would like to
get to know some more about "when and where" the "intrinsicSizes"-function
would be used.
I notice that Chrome Canary hasn't implemented this feature yet, and I also
don't see an example implementation in "

I'm particularly wondering:
- what is the purpose of this function anyway :-) ? When I provide a
return-value for the properties "minContentSize" and "maxContentSize", what
behaviour should I expect?
- when is "intrinsicSizes" for each child being invoked? Just before it's
own "layout"-function is being invoked? Or are all
"intrinsicSizes"-functions being invoked for all children (multiple levels
deep) before all "layout"-functions will be invoked?
- will it be possible to return a "data"-object-property, aside from the
"minContentSize" and "maxContentSize" properties?

Thank you so much for your help,

All the best,
