Oh, I read "definite minimum track sizes" as "definite min track sizes",
i.e. those tracks that have a "definite min sizing function".

Would it possible to rephrase it to avoid this confusion?
"... but requires a definite track size (at least one of the min/max track
sizing functions) ...", or simply
"... but requires a definite track size ...", leaving the details
for later?


Thanks,
