:) The point I wanted to make (although not very clearly i admit) was 
that there are several concerns wrt behaviour that might need to be 
discussed before recommending this behaviour, such as content with 
%heights > 100%, %heights < 100% combined with other blocks, negative 
bottom/right alignment and maybe more such as relation between auto 
widths and auto heights.

I realize that the CSS forum might be an even better place to discuss 
this, but I thought it would be good to raise the flag while the topic 
was discussed.
