Side note: This implies that the flex item forced "display" tweak
(making them block-flavored, from applying the table in CSS 2.1 Chapter
9.7) is not having any effect on <br> elements. Indeed, <br> elements
are pretty resistant to CSS styling; I posted separately to the WHATWG
today about a possible source of confusion on that point, in the WHATWG
HTML spec:
