Ah sorry I was a bit to fast in my previous explanations

Setting the width property to 0 to a flexible box reduce the problem of
having the remaining space equal to the whole parent width but does not
solve it completely. Because the content of the first box, this box always
have a none 0 computed width.

It could be possible to apply an overflow property with the value hidden.
unfortunately, at that time, doing this just mess it up the result in
Firefox (well the result is not really intuitive because for some unknown
reason, the content of the first block is cut off and I'm not able to found
something in the current draft that explain that behavior).
