As far as I know, there is currently no shorthand having a different 
value as there longhands, though a shorthand may have an initial value
 that doesn't refer to its longhands.
Take the `flex` property as example again. It's syntax is defined as:

    none | [ <‘flex-grow’> <‘flex-shrink’>? || <‘flex-basis’> ]

It could have had `none` as initial value, which is not part of the 
longhands' syntaxes.
@fantasai, maybe you can explain why you changed the initial value of 
`flex` from 'see individual properties' to `1 0 auto` in 

@frivoal what about the other property definitions mentioned above?
