Whether or not `none` is part of the longhand's syntax, the shorthand 
can only have `none` as an initial value of what `none` on the 
shorthand sets the longhands to is their initial value. Anything else 
is nonsensical.

What about them? The initial values of the flex and font property you 
describe do not exist independently of the initial values of the 
longhands. “The  initial value of the flex property is 1 0 auto” is 
nothing more than a shortcut way of saying “The initial values of the 
flex-grow flex-shrink and flex-basis properties are respectively 1, 0 
and auto”.
