Issue 1: Numerical indices for grid-end / grid-after.
   Should they count starting from the first or last line?
   See thread at http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2013Mar/0182.html

   Tab and I think they should start from the first line,
   so that numbers are always referring to a consistent line.

Issue 2: Negative indices for grid positioning
   Should they be valid and count from the opposite side of positive indices?
   See thread at http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2013Mar/0184.html

   Tab and I think this makes sense, especially if grid-end/after
   count from the start/before edge.

Issue 3: Need better syntax for named lines.
   Should we adopt the parenthesized idents syntax? Other ideas?
   See thread at http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2013Mar/0256.html

Issue 4: The 'order' property
   Does 'order' apply to grid items?
   It would affect auto-placement and z-order, as for flex items.

   Tab and I think it should, for consistency with Flexbox.

Issue 5: Grid Terminology
   Should we switch the term "grid area" to "grid field" and/or "grid cell"
   to "grid unit"?
   See thread at http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2012Aug/0063.html

   No strong opinion, would be glad to hear from others.
