I think, if you have a nested form structure, it gets very difficult 
to make it really work. E.g.
    <form> ... </form>

We could use `display: contents` to strip the <section> and auto-place
 all the buttons into the first column, but there's no way to place 
the form into a grid slot _that spans all those rows_. And if you have
 sub-forms, then I'm not sure what you'd do. Regions could solve this 
easily, because it can rearrange the content. If you're willing to 
potentially have a scrollbar for the form area, you could also do it 
with abspos, because abspos can jump the containing block ancestry 
into the main grid--but you can't do it in-flow otherwise, not without
 the descendant grid-positioning that was in Bert's original proposal.
