More on those...

So far flex units are defined for width, height, padding, margin and 
left/top/right/bottom attributes.
But I suspect that 'border' may also benefit from them if to think about 
border-image for example.

Or think about construction like:

   border-left:  *  solid  yellow;

it will shift the #rightmost element to the right with the fill of that 
space by the yellow color.

Will it be useful?  Probably for things like the <meter> from HTML5
http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html#the-meter-element ?
