Why?

 # justify-self
 #
 # ...
 #
 # ‘auto’
 #     For block-level elements, use alignment specified by the
 #   ‘justify-content’ property of the containing block.

 # justify-content
 #
 # ...
 #
 # ‘auto’
 #    If the element has ‘display: block’ and ‘justify-self: auto’,
 #    computes to the value inherited from the parent. Otherwise
 #    computes to ‘start’.

That seems like a 'start' to me.

Just to be clear, I am talking about the alignment of the flex
container, not the flex lines within it.

Kenny
