Would taking the max of the two Euclidian distances affect the clarity of textures if the two distances were very different in magnitude? It would result in picking a much larger mipmap level than is required for on of the directions.

How could I gain some more intuition about the 'arbitrary' choice of Max affects our mipmap and why do we choose that?
