Looking at your use counters it's clear that introducing grid raised the numbers immediately... seems like another great opportunity missed to rid the web of wacky patterns.

As to this being "theoretical purity" - you can make that argument for block and table layout where heights are results of widths. Before introducing grid however, we worked hard to make sure % values actually work.
