Note: I know this would technically violate the principle of computed
value being resolved up to the point where we need layout information,
and used value involving post-layout resolution.

However, computed value is also "the value that's inherited".  So, if we
think that inheriting "auto" makes more sense than inheriting whatever
"auto" happens to pull from its width/height [which could be the value
'auto'] (as I do), then I'd expect that making an explicit used vs.
computed distinction would be reasonable.
