Hmm but that doesn't actually seem right either. I just remembered this test:
http://test.csswg.org/suites/css-flexbox-1_dev/nightly-unstable/html/flexbox_min-width-auto.htm

Which explicitly assumes that min-width: auto would resolve to
something bigger than its width: 0. Same for the height version of
that testcase.
