[css3-flexbox] if 'flex' is a shorthand, it should be defined as such

While there's a passing comment at the end of
http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-flexbox/#flexibility-components saying
that 'flex' is a shorthand property, nothing in the definition of
the property at http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-flexbox/#flexibility
says that it's a shorthand property.

In particular, in order to be a shorthand:

 * the definition should say how the parse structure of the values
   of the shorthand maps to values of its longhand subproperties

 * its "Initial value", "Computed value", and "Animatable" lines
   should say "see individual properties"
