As written in the current ED, the default sizing algorithm (5.3.1) 

> If the specified size has no constraints:
> 1. If the object has an intrinsic height or width, its size is
> resolved as if its intrinsic size were given as the specified size.
> 2. Otherwise, its size is resolved as a contain constraint against
> the default object size.

1 and 2 both invoke sub-algorithms, but fall into specific cases of 
these algorithms. I think the quoted text would be more clearly written as:

> If the specified size has no constraints, each dimension of the
> concrete object size is taken from the intrinsic dimensions if that
> intrinsic dimension is given, from the default object size
> otherwise.
