I don't think it matters if we're a child of a flex box -- "align-self"
should compute in the same way, regardless of the parent type [aside
from the "no parent" special-case].

I don't think there's any reason for "align-self:auto" to have custom
behavior depending on the parent's display property.

At least, that was my understanding from Tab's last post on this related
thread:
