dbaron has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [css-align] Note about *-items should be clearer ==
The [Overview section](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-align/#overview) of css-align has a Note:

> Note: The *-items properties don’t affect the element itself. When set on a container, they specify the interpretation of any *-self: auto used on children of the container element.

The first sentence of this note is a bit unclear.  In particular, it sounds like something that's true of both `*-items` and `*-content`.  I think what it really means to say is that the `*-items` properties don't actually *do* anything except through their effect on the initial value of the `*-self` properties.
