I had misremembered that we implemented the "fully inflexible" requirement here, but it seems that in fact we weren't able to do so because it's not web-compatible, as noted in these code-comments:
https://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/rev/699174544b058f13f02e7586b3c8fdbf438f084b/layout/generic/nsFlexContainerFrame.cpp#2167-2173
https://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/rev/699174544b058f13f02e7586b3c8fdbf438f084b/layout/generic/nsFlexContainerFrame.cpp#2130,2133-2135
and this chromium issue:
https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=1003506#c7

So I agree that we should just remove the "fully inflexible" restriction here, to match implementations & webcompat requirements (which are what caused this implementation behavior).
