RE: [css3-flexbox] Typos in updated flexbox spec

'flex-align' values were before|after|middle|stretch|baseline, which apparently changed recently to start|end|center|baseline|stretch.

I don't see any discussion or resolution to rename values, and I though we agreed earlier that it makes sense to match vertical-align values. What happened here?

Hmm, dunno how I missed that.  Changed them to start/end/center as
they should be.

A couple more nits:
- There's an example in section 2 that uses flex-align: middle. It should also be changed to center.
- In section 6.1, the initial value of flex-line-pack is 'before', which isn't one of the possible values.
