In §9.4 "Aligning the Grid: the justify-content and align-content 
properties", the ED says:

> If the grid’s outer edges do not correspond to the grid container’s
> padding edges (for example, if no columns are flex-sized), the grid
> is aligned within the padding box according to the justify-content
> and align-content properties on the grid container.

This should be content edges and content box rather than padding edges 
and padding box. I think this makes more sense, and is confirmed by the 
Box Alignment spec in §4. "Content Distribution: the ‘justify-content’ 
and ‘align-content’ properties"

> The alignment container is the grid container’s content box.
