Related notes:

Baseline of a flexbox is the baseline of its first child (in source order, in the first ordinal group). This doesn’t depend on direction, orientation or ‘box-lines’ property.
NOTE: this simple rule may need to be adjusted if use cases are found where getting baseline from the first child is not the best choice. To be updated as needed.

Within a flexbox, baselines of children are determined in the same way as when applying baseline alignment to table cells (baseline of an element with multiple lines of text is the baseline of its first line).
