I think the new proposed min-width/min-height behavior probably makes
sense. "computes to itself" is a nice simplification from the previous
min-width behavior, I think. (on top of the fact that it'd be required,
due to behaving a bit differently from min-content now).

If I'm understanding correctly, I believe Firefox/Gecko already has the
behavior suggested in (a) and (b) here, too.

So, fine by me :)

I support "no change" here.

There's a good bit of complexity involved (conceptually as well as
implementation-wise, at least in Gecko) in having a property's computed
value depend on the computed value of a different property on a
different element.

If there were a strong behavioral reason to do this (as there is for
e.g. the special "display" behavior on flex items), then that'd be one
thing, but I don't (currently) see that here.

I'm happy with the status quo here ("order" not affecting counters).
