Ian suggested in his comment #17 of bug 13113[1] that rb is not necessary if we can go with column-major approach. That is why I asked Roland's help to discuss on advantages and disadvantages of row/column-major approaches.

My understanding now is in the bottom of the original e-mail; if we need inline style, row-major is the way to go, and therefore we need rb.
