Interesting. It may work, *if* find that all or most table features also apply to grid; table fixup will be a concern too. But it would be interesting to consider. As a bonus, simple cases will just work in old browsers.

One possibility would be to use table-layout: grid and not introduce any new display values.

There will of course be an 'inline-grid'. For the other permutations, whatever applies to a table applies to a grid. If there is ever 'table-cell-table' there will be a 'table-cell-grid' (or equivalent use of 'display-inside'/'display-outside' if we take that route)

Regarding Requirement #1:
A "grid" is a 'display' value, a coordinate system applicable to some or all blocks, or both.
If it is a value of 'display' then are there all other variants like inline-grid, list-item-grid and table-cell-grid?
