While I think this is a good thing to do, I wonder if we can be more
aggressive in this direction. That is, do this for:

1. A multicol element
2. A transformed element (does this already happen?)
3. An element with 'inline-block'

and probably more. Apparently, this needs compatibility research...

Or is there a good reason why we should start with flex items?


Cheers,
Kenny
