In your example, `flex: none` is equivalent to `flex: 0 0 auto`, where the 1st `0` goes to `flex-grow`, the 2nd `0` to `flex-shrink`, and `auto` to `flex-basis`.

But note that shorthands don't always accept values for all their longhands.  For example, take `border: 1px solid black`. It has the values for `border-*-width`, `border-*-style` and `border-*-color` longhands. But it also sets `border-image-source: none; border-image-slice: 100%; border-image-width: 1; border-image-outset: 0; border-image-repeat: stretch`. However, the `border` grammar doesn't accept e.g. `stretch`.

So in general this can't be done just by changing the list of component values. We would need a map associating each longhand with its own list, or something like that.

> Do you mean that the appropriate values for flex-grow, flex-shrink, flex-basis, ie. 0, 0, auto, should be "expanded" at this step, from the list of component value, eg. [Identifier('none')]?

I think that's what supposed to happen, yes, but it's handwaved.

Implementations don't have to follow the specs step by step. If the result is indistinguishable from what you should get according to the spec, then it's fine.
