Thank you for your comments. I am looking forward to using Template Layout and hope this draft will make it into the real world soon.

Yes, that is the problem with the real world. I can't tell my clients I don't support IE7 (or charge extra for supporting it) because it is not enough standards compliant, so I never used layouts based on display:table-* so far. I'm afraid the same will apply to many CSS3 modules for the first several years after they are made standards.
