Right. It may not make sense to try provide all solutions in all
models, and I'm not trying to push you to add more stuff. If it's
simpler to achieve common cases through other means, perhaps it
shouldn't be added to regions.

Another use case which illuminates the interface between regions and
structural styling is a magazine articles with regions galore on the
first page, and then it switches to simple multi-column layout from
page 2 and onwards. How can one comine regions with multicol layouts?

Cheers,
