That's not what I understood. My understanding was effectively that the very loose definition was excluding inline-block and inline-flex. Which can make sense: the B in BFC is "block", and if it can refer to other formatting contexts than block ones, then it seems to me that it means block-level (or strictly speaking, non-inline-level) formatting context.

But I don't know, not a fan of this loose definition, I would remove it and just leave the proper one.

BTW, it seems that, instead of BFC, the concept that you want is ["independent formatting context"](https://www.w3.org/TR/css-display-3/#establish-an-independent-formatting-context).
