I was referring to a full case with an html context. But fine, floated
children 
boxes can be smaller in height than that of it container's wanted
min-height, that's a conceivable practical case indeed.

I meant that if your container is defined as per your example, but it does
not contain any floated elements, min-height: contain-floats; shall be in
this case invalidated, with the min-height: 200px; taking precedence.

You are probably right though, considering what Tab said. I suppose I fell
into this assumption due to their reasoning for doing the specs that way
in the first place.

It sounds like a mistake. Sorry for initially failing to see it.
