This type of layout is supposed to work on any device, screens being  
wide or tall. Individual agents don't necessarily need to support a  
dynamic switch of their aspect ratio. But of course, that should work  
as well. In general, the content is not for small screen "only". It's  
supposed to work as well on TV and desktop.

Please support MQ aspect-ratio, based on the agents rendering area.
