[css3-flexbox] hypothetical size for breaking vs. flex basis

Right now multi-line flexboxes break into lines using the flex basis.
This makes a lot of sense for any explicit value of the flex basis.
But for auto, I'm wondering if it might make more sense to use the
minimum size instead. If you have a navigation bar, for example,
you might want it to try shrinking the items to try to fit into a
single line before breaking across lines.

Might be something to address in Level 2, e.g. with new keywords for
wrapping. But I thought I'd point it out.
