Speaking of exaggerations. Sure, it's only boxes with text content we're talking 
about so that should be very localized :) 

Setting width:0 does the trick; that it's not obvious is one thing. But if authors
had to explicitly set width:0 every time they make an element flexible then something
is wrong; could width:auto resolve to 0 if the element is  flexible ?
