Oops. I didn't even notice that. On the other hand, the spec doesn't seem to forbid non-rectangular grid cells, does it? It just doesn't have a way to create them other than with template. Personally, I think it would be useful to be able to create "L", "C", and "O" -shaped areas.

That's basically what Elika was suggesting with '.' padding, although we don't currently talk about the role of non-letters (i.e. '.') in the grid.
