W3C Member Proposes "Fix" For CSS Prefix Problem
The aligning problems you cite are exactly the sorts of new features that are subject to the prefix problem -- see the flexbox spec (at http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-flexbox/)... and then see the 2009 flexbox spec (at http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/WD-css3-flexbox-20090723). Most browsers (minus the IEs) support the old version. A few Chrome versions -- NOT -webkit-*, just Chrome -- support the new syntax (see http://caniuse.com/flexbox).
So, to sum up: we have this new standard you desire, but the problem addressed by the FA is directly to blame for the lack of adoption.
The Abdication of the HTML Standard
If you want to display data in a table, use table tags. That's fine. That's what they're there for. They're NOT there for general block-level content layout.
