That's a regression from the CR. Thanks for pointing it out.

I found the changeset responsible:
   https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/csswg/diff/dd7b53d4dd43/css-flexbox/Overview.bs

Here's the corresponding fix:
   https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/csswg/diff/02ec94250862/css-flexbox/Overview.bs

(I also switched us back to using 'display' instead of the longhands, since
we're planning to remove that from CSS Display imminently.)

Let me know if that looks good, or you have any other concerns or suggestions!
