To start, I want to say that I like the idea of the `place-*` prefix, 
and I can see the consistency here with other CSS conventions. 

However, I'm worried that this can get confusing though  (the 
existence of all of these properties):

justify-content: space-between;
align-content: center;
place-content: space-between

Looking at those without prior knowledge, it's hard to understand what
 they all mean individually, and how to remember the nuances. Maybe 
prepending with `grid` might help?

grid-place-items: <'justify-items'> / <'align-items'>;
grid-place-self: <'justify-self'> / <'align-self'>;
grid-place-content: <'justify-content'> / <'align-content'>;

And then a shortcut for all of them can be:

grid-placement: <grid-place-items> <grid-place-self> 

^ These will likely all be used together anyway to build layouts.
