Thanks, fantasai. 

This appears then exactly as my 

container 
{ 
    flow:h-flow 
}
container > child 
{    
    height:100%%; /* full height of current row */
    width: 25%%; /* four columns if space allows*/
}
container > child.header
{    
    width: 100%%; /* but header always spans full row */
}

if I get the idea right of course.
