I forgot one (now tracked in a bugzilla bug):

Rename flex-order
===============

fantasai recommends changing flex-order to box-order, for the same
reasons as the alignment properties - this property is potentially
usable by other layout modes, and if they do, it would be nice to have
a more generic name.

'box-order' matches the naming convention fantasai established in her
suggestion for renaming the alignment properties.
