 These seem like orthogonal issues to me.  Why would accepting proposal C 
 (initial "flex:0 1 auto") imply that we also want "flex:X" to mean 
 "flex:X 1"?

It doesn't. It would make sense though if we prefer clever defaults. Keeping "flex-shink:1" always, unless it is explicitly changed, maintains the behavior that matches default, and we have already decided that we like it.
