That's not the point.  The point is that defining computation 
differently for flexbox items and non-flexbox items complicates 
implementations (and will significantly complicate the spec, I suspect). 
  Is there a benefit to doing it that way?  If not, then just do the 
simpler thing which uniformly computes 'auto' to the flex-align of the 
parent (modulo the root element issue).
