We could possibly piggy-back this onto Grid Layout, but in my estimation
the Sizing spec isn't going to stabilize anytime in the next 2+ years
just because the layout rules in it don't seem likely to stabilize that
quickly.

However, the general intent of the min-content/max-content/fit-content
keywords is pretty clear, their syntax has been stable for awhile yet--
and will be shipped as part of Grid Layout as values of the
grid-template-rows/columns properties. Any differences across implementations are already reflected as non-interop in 
float/tables/
flex/etc. sizing. So I think we might want to take a WG decision to
allow shipping unprefixed implementations of these width/height keywords.

I'd be happy to wait until Grid Layout goes to CR, but at that point
they'll be baked into CSS syntax and might as well get released as
width/height values as well.
