Oh, btw! Current spec text you might have missed:

# The align-content property applies along the block (column) axis.
# The justify-content property applies along the inline (row) axis.
# In both properties, if a <content-distribution> is specified, the
# fallback alignment is used instead.

Notice specifically the last sentence.
