One nit on this new intrinsic-sizing spec text:

  #  1. For each flex item, subtract its flex basis
  #     from its max-content contribution size [...]
  #  3. [...] Add each item’s flex basis to the product of its [...]

"flex basis" is not the right term to use here, if we're doing addition
& subtraction.  Consider e.g. "flex-basis: 50%" -- that's not usable for
arithmetic until we've established the flex container's size. (And we
might be in the process of establishing the container's size, if we have
e.g. a floated auto-sized flex container.)

I think this means to say "flex base size" perhaps? That term is defined
