When you read the full reply you'll see that the intent of regions is to have basic building blocks that can be used to redirect content into and having this content fragmented into any other (optional) subsequent regions. Thus, what the layout of the regions themselves is actually depends on where they're used - eg. Grid, page template, perhaps multicolumn etc.

I do see where you confusions stems from though and I think it is a good request that we add the proper styling for the region elements. Vincent, perhaps we need to open an issue here?

Cheers,
Rossen
