> all the different ways CSS 3 has envisioned to do layouts by now

This is, after closer inspection as I wasn’t sure whether anything
changed, a great example for my criticism:

* CSS Flexible Box Layout Module, http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-flexbox/
* CSS Grid Layout, http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-grid-layout/
* CSS Multi-column Layout Module, http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-multicol/
* CSS Positioned Layout Module Level 3, http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-positioning/
* CSS Grid Template Layout Module, http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-layout/
* Alternative Grid Layout proposal,
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2012Sep/0047.html

*All* are solving very similar problems.

Yet *all* appear be on the CSS WG radar, if one can believe
<http://disruptive-innovations.com/zoo/customers/CSSWG/Priorities.html>.

Why and how, if that is the assumption, would we *not* consolidate?
