The initial values for min-height and min-width have traditionally
been “0” [1,2,…]. Flexbox introduces “auto” [3] as a compatible update
to the old value.

Is this “done” though, is “auto” indeed to be considered the new
initial default for these two properties? (What should an index like
http://meiert.com/en/indices/css-properties/ say?)

(Thanks Oriol for pointing this out!)
