I agree "responsive" deserves a tag. Or it should replace flexible-width.
I imagine flexible-width is meant to mean what people call fluid width.
There should be descriptions for the tags to prevent this confusion. Themes
tagged "responsive" should work at *any* size—not just specific sizes or
devices. No overflow.

*width*-based media queries can be precisely tested by simply resizing the
browser window and are thus easier to test than *device-width *ones (which
require actual devices or emulators). width-based ones should be
recommended. Chrome and Firefox (also) both have built-in emulators in
their dev tools.
