To be clear, I'm also only intending to test the "flex-basis:content" behavior (and see whether it gets clamped pre-flexing by the max-width) on the *first* flex item -- the one w/ initial "flex-basis:auto;width:auto".

The second flex item has an explicit width [which I'm intending to get co-opted by its flex-basis:auto]. That item only exists so that we can see how much each flex item is shrinking & infer from that what the flex base sizes were.
