Hi,

I'd kindly ask the editors to clarify what being sized under 
min|max-content constraint exactly means[1] for the track sizing 
algorithm. In particular I'd like to know if we're talking about just 
the width|height of the grid container or if we should take a look also 
to our ancestors to check that (provided the grid has relative or auto 
sizes).

Should we want to extend it to our ancestors then the implementations 
might start to suffer from severe performance issues because we might 
need some extra layouts. For example if we want to take into account the 
values of min|max-width|height restrictions then we need to layout to 
know whether we're we satisfy or not those conditions.
