This seems similar to table alignment issue that David was showing at F2F. mixing stretch with other alignment values would complicate the model though... is there a convincing enough use case to justify it?

2. `box-align: stretch` does not allow sufficient control over the alignment of the box contents after the height is increased.  I guess the children just act like normal boxes, and top-align themselves?
This prevents us from, say, baseline-aligning boxes but still wanting a background/border to be the same height on everything.  I suggest that either 'stretch' should be a valid value *in addition to* the other values, or that we should define vertical-align affecting flexbox children similarly to how it affects table cells.
