Sounds great. 

We could add that when baseline of flexbox children is determined it is determined the same way as if they were inline-blocks (or inline-table, inline-etc., or "display-ouside:inline-block" in your terminology). Unless this is obvious.

So, I'll define it thusly:

1. If the first flexbox child has a baseline, that's the baseline of the flexbox.
2. If the first flexbox child doesn't have a baseline, or the flexbox doesn't have any children, the baseline is the after inner edge of the flexbox.

Sound good?
