This constraint generally aligns with the flexbox model where children 
of the flex container turn into flex items. (Given how much we have
prioritized 'consistency' lately, I think it's reasonable to point that
out).

Thankfully it seems we're not changing the default behavior i.e. this is 
an extension. Any reason this needs to be addressed in Level 1 though? 
The potential for enhancements in this area is very large. While I'm not 
opposed to staying in WD and postponing some level of cross-browser interop 
while Bert thinks of other 'interesting examples' I'd also like to know if 
other implementers believe this needs to be defined in order for them to 
implement this feature. Author input is also especially important; very 
specifically: what can't they do with the feature as it is that would be
solved by including this proposal?
