I don't see how that helps, if you're trying to determine the size of 
the _content_ box.

The resolution of percentages happens during layout of the row, so 
before this final stretch-to-fit-the-row bit.

implementations that are neither compatible with each other nor the 
spec, and no clear indication of what the spec _should_ look like around
