Don't do this yet; your attempt on Flexbox shows that we have a
*severe* usability gap caused by (a) bad markup in Transitions (<b>
rather than <dfn>), and (b) no DWIM in Bikeshed.  I'll fix both of
those issues first, then fix Flexbox proper.  Then you can go ahead
and do the rest of the specs. ^_^
