Yeah, I think [1] is a bug.  "justify-items" should *not* be marked as
applying to flex containers.

See also this thread from February of this year...
 https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2015Feb/0304.html
...where Tab confirms that (a) justify-items is simply a convenience
property to influence justify-self on a container's items, and (b)
justify-self doesn't apply to flex items. So based on (a) and (b), we
can conclude that justify-items shouldn't apply to flex containers, and
your spec-link labeled as [1] needs fixing.
