Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-flexbox][css-sizing] Using tables in flexbox

It is my understanding ```width:fill``` should indeed behave like 
```width:100%``` in this case, but I haven't looked at that very much 
since Edge does not support the feature at this point.

The actual problem you are having though is that your final markup is 
in fact:
        <caption>...</caption><!-- moved out of <table> -->
and applying flex:1 on ```<table>``` has no effect since it is not a 
direct children of the flex.

I have a very strong distaste for this wrapper thing and would totally
 want to remove it, it adds tons of unnecessary complexity and is not 
that interoperable but I haven't had much success in convincing people
 (especially @fantasai) that we should move to spec this instead:
    <table><!-- keeps most of its properties -->
        <::table-grid-area /><!-- hoists only background and border 
from parent -->
        <caption>...</caption> <!-- no need to move -->

Note that there was already another bug on this, so we might want to 
consider merging the threads.
