Ok, to speak to his question then:

The main size determination states:

# Otherwise, starting from the first uncollected item, collect consecutive items one by one until the first time that the next collected item would not fit
# ** into the flex container’s inner main size ** (or until a forced break is encountered, see §10 Fragmenting Flex Layout). 
# If the very first uncollected item wouldn’t fit, collect just it into the line.

Isn't this stating to take the constraints of the main size into account? Thus max-height in the case of a column flex container?
