http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-ui/#text-overflow says:
  # This property specifies rendering when inline content overflows
  # its block container element ("the block") in its inline
  # progression direction that has ‘overflow’ other than ‘visible’.

http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-flexbox/#flex-containers says:
  # Flex containers are not block containers,

Yet https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=912434 was filed
with the expectation that text-overflow work on flexboxes, which
seems like a pretty reasonable expectation to me.

Should it?

             What I was walling in or walling out,
             And to whom I was like to give offense.
