[css-flexbox] Edits to testsuite have broken some submitted tests

I noticed some breaking changes that were made to some flexbox reftests
that Mozilla has submitted to the Flexbox testsuite and which are
publicly testable via the link at the top of the ED (
http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-flexbox/ ).  In particular, it looks like
some test files have been auto-converted from .xhtml to .htm, and that
process was imperfect & broke the rendering of some reference cases.

I'm not sure where to report these issues; hence, I'm reporting here. (I
thought http://test.csswg.org/shepherd/ might be the place to report
issues with the testsuite, but that server doesn't seem to know anything
about these particular test files. ("No Assets Found", when I search for
them by name.)  Moreover, a "find" command in my clone of
http://hg.csswg.org/test doesn't find these files. So I'm not sure where
they exist or where issues with them are tracked.)

The two specific issues I'd like to report for the moment are:

 (a) The reference case shown here...
...doesn't have the light-blue "center" blocks centered, but it should.

For comparison, the submitted file looks like this:

The problem is that there's a <!-- --> comment in the <style> block,
which is interpreted as a comment in XHTML but apparently not in HTML,
and it neuters some style in the converted-to-HTML version.

 (b) This reference case is just totally broken (should render with a
bunch of baseline-aligned horizontal items):

For comparison, the submitted file looks like this:

(Again, this seems to be from an XHTML-to-HTML autoconversion problem.)
