What about something like "width: calc(100px + 1fl)" or 
"width: calc(100% + 1fl)" ?  I'm not sure exactly what you
mean by "intrinsic width plus flex"; I'm going by analogy with
the fill[l[l]] units in TeX; but this seems natural enough.

(very much -1 on "*" as unit specifier btw - let's not make the core
lexical syntax any worse than it already is please)
