> The actual issue here is that shorthand props don't _have_ initial 
values, so the 'flex' block is wrong - it should just say "see 
individual properties", like it does for all the other rows.

I think that statement is not correct, shorthands may have initial 
values, they are just normally built up by their related longhand 
values. While there is no such case I know of, e.g. `flex` could have 
had `none` as initial value.
Also, 'see individual properties' is not very expressive. (Therefore 
[MDN lists the longhands in those 
cases](https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/flex).) So, 
listing the individual longhands would be better, though that's out of
 the scope of this change here.
