Following up on this, in light of another recent thread -- mats concern
here will be addressed (i.e. this conflict goes away) once fantasai's
suggestion from this other thread makes it into the spec:
 https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2015Nov/0284.html

However, there is one other similar conflict, per this post I just sent:
  https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2015Nov/0327.html
I'm hoping that can be similarly-resolved, by handling this
special-nonsensical-case at layout time instead of at computation time.
