The reason the alignment values for rows and columns are all the same in the grid is because they do the same thing, and given that each track has only two edges it seemed unnecessary to use four names.

Do you know how many places the pattern below occurs?

    before
start + end
     after

 Why aren't we using that convention?

That is what I proposed for 'flex-align' values -- and actually implemented that, which is now embarrassing, as it is the only place where IE10 preview is different from 2009 spec.

The reasoning for start/end was in fact to have same values as in grid. That and start/end being inline direction only in 50% of possible cases.
