That sounds pretty swell except for the bit about it being hypothetical. 
Somewhat less hypothetically, "display: inline-block" seems like it may be 
another good way to accomplish that kind of layout except that most browsers 
do not yet seem to support it (or at least, they do not yet support it 
well); Opera is a notable exception.
