Reported by Morten Stenshorne

The 'overflow' property needs to apply to flexboxes, but it doesn't do so
"automatically" due to the "Applies To" line in CSS21 stating that 'overflow'
applies to block containers.  (See also Bug 15381 which aims to have 'overflow'
apply to table boxes in addition.)

It would be nice if the spec could be tweaked so that 'overflow' would
"automatically" apply to new types of formatting context, without needing to
explicitly spec that in each and every new spec which needs it.
