I believe you mean that this merely establishes the grid, but does not  
make anything snap to it. The "will align to" phrasing makes that a bit  
ambiguous.

Are the text-top and text-bottom always the ones we want to use as bounds?  
If not, instead of specifying "bounds", you could give the name of two  
baselines, and that's  the ones that would be used as a top and bottom  
bounds. I am not completely sure this is needed, but embox top baseline  
and embox bottom baseline come to mind as things that are distinct from  
text-top and text-bottom, but could still be nice to bound-snap to.
