Not in that exact case, since this rule applies only to replaced
elements.

However, if the inner div were instead an img, yes.  And this
behavior appears to be required for Web-compatibility (although I
haven't searched the testcases for how many actually specify width,
so I'm not sure that the aspect of max-width:% overriding width:px
for this case is required).
