I had proposed before we use {column-span:all-not-before} instead of

I believe that vocabulary for mass market products should be "dummy proof"
because I am dummy and proud of it-- meaning the more intuitive things
are, the less extraneous caveats that I have to compact into oxymoronic
terms ('break' doesn't always mean 'break', 'all' doesn't alwayys mean
'all', 'dots' mean 'pixels', etc), the more work flows.
