There have been several discussions about this topic in the past, I'm linking the last one I found just for reference: https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2015Feb/0521.html

Regarding this issue there are some use counters in Chrome to measure the usage of percentage vertical padding and margins in flexbox:
* Percentage vertical padding: https://www.chromestatus.com/metrics/feature/timeline/popularity/955
* Percentage vertical margin: https://www.chromestatus.com/metrics/feature/timeline/popularity/956

I guess one question is to know if people are using it for the [aspect ratio trick](https://css-tricks.com/aspect-ratio-boxes/#article-header-id-0), and if so if we're planning to remove that possibility without having a good alternative. Probably @rachelandrew's post could help to gather valuable feedback on that topic.

Adding @cbiesinger to the loop as he participated in previous discussions about this topic and is the flexbox maintainer on Chrome.
