>>  However, if you happened to want to have a layout which extended
 *vertically* to contain more content, you would actually want an
 asymettrical proportionality based on *height*. This suggests the
 addition of a CSS context property e.g. layout-base: { vertical |
 horizontal | independent } which could apply to how this works on all
 children with a default of horizontal.

If I want to 'spread out' vertically, why would that imply I also want the
same spreading
on the horizontal axis?

I meant the last sentence as a general solution rather than specifically in the vertically extending case. I've edited my comment to make this clearer.
