The harm is that the Grid CR is recommending us to implement a feature
 that is sub-optimal for authors.  It would be better if implementers 
tried to implement the older version of the subgrid spec (where 
`subgrid` could be specified independently for each axis) and then 
report back if there are any actual implementation issues with that.  
It's quite clear from the quote above though, that CR means the 
discussion is over and that alternative solutions aren't going to be

That would be unfortunate, when I'm telling you I'm willing to 
investigate if subgrid could work independently in each axis right 
now.  But I'm not going to invest that time unless the CSSWG would 
welcome such a spec change, which seems very unlikely when the CR 
precludes that solution.
