Hmm... that's interesting. Was there a discussion about this?

I noticed this part

  # Every line contains at least one flex item, unless the flex
  # container itself is completely empty.

in "6. Flex Lines", but I think this should probably go into "9 Flex
Layout Algorithm" since it's a bit surprising.

Also, this doesn't match the inline model, does it? What if we introduce
something like 'line-height' in the future for flex lines?
