gsnedders has just created a new issue for 

== [css-flexbox] Flexbox terminology definitions ==
This all focuses on [the 
terminology](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-flexbox/#box-model) section.

Figure 2 shows the "main size" taking up the entire width of the flex 
container. This contradicts the definition of "main size" ("A flex 
item’s width or height, whichever is in the main dimension, is the 
item’s main size"), insofar as it applies to a flex item rather than a

We also talk about the "flex container’s main size" in various places 
in the spec, cross-referenced to the same above definition of "main 
size", which is simply nonsense because the term simply doesn't apply.

We're also inconsistent as to hyphenation. Is it "main size" or 
"main-size"? Is it "cross size" or "cross-size"?
