But 'grid-column-span'/'grid-row-span' wouldn't readily take a name. It can be fixed by having separate properties for start/end grid lines (like 'grid-column-start'/'grid-column-end'... or even 'grid-x-start'/'grid-x-end' ?)

I have the feeling that indices should be dropped in
favor of named lines. I don't really like the idea
of spanning in a grid layout. A grid should define
position of blocks and spanning is really a concept
that belongs to tables and should not be there.

On another note, what about adding me as an editor of the
document? I'm willing to contribute.
