"Computed values are processed as far as possible without formatting the
document. Some values, however, can only be determined when the document is
being laid out."

http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-flexbox/#flex-item-align
"A value of ‘auto’ for ‘flex-item-align’ makes the flexbox item use the
alignment specified by ‘flex-align’ on its flexbox."

That text in the cascading spec is a little vague. If an element has
flex-item-align:auto, should it's computed value be "auto" or should it be
the parent's flex-align value?
