What you are describing is reasonable and consistent with 2.1 (and it's what I plan to do when I add support for anonymous flexbox children). Another possibility however is to not leave a placeholder, but only use the hypothetical block and hypothetical line to determine auto position. It is also consistent with the concept of positioned content being completely removed from flow, and may actually be better behavior.

Whatever we do, we should be consistent with how display:table handles
things.  I don't think this is an important enough issue to justify a
confusing difference.

(I don't care what that means; adjusting display:table is as valid as
adjusting display:flexbox, if it can be done without compat problems.)
