It's not clear to me from reading the algorithms what
   width: auto;
   flex: auto;
would result in, since the 'width' is neither definite nor one of the
values handled explicitly in the Flexbox algorithm. (Even if it was
clear, I'd suggest making a note of it in the 'flex' section so authors
would have some chance of noticing.)

My suggestion is that it do something smart, like 'fit-content' with
an imposed min-size of 'min-content'.
