What's the point of min shutter speed if it can go below the minimum when it wants?

Every time I try to create an aperture priority work flow I come back to this issue. There is no absolute floor for min shutter speed or absolute ceiling for auto iso, which sort of defeats the purpose of not shooting in manual if I still have to be thinking so much about these settings.

I can't see how not having an actual minimum value for min shutter speed is a better implementation than having the camera decide it's a good idea to go below the minimum I set, that's kind of the whole point of minimum, it's the minimum value I want. I understand you can raise the theoretical max limit of auto iso to combat this but there are situations where I don't want to do that, and it really isn't necessary to begin with.
