Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-grid-1] Clarify the reason of limit the rows/cols at grid, and increase it

Using a many thousands of grid rows of 1px size to do this layout 
isn't elegant, it's an ugly hack.

The Grid spec already motivates why a limit is needed: "Since memory 
is limited", and I'd like to add "and since CPU resources are 
limited".  Using millions of grid cells requires large amounts of 
memory and processing which creates unacceptable latency on slow 

I agree that the masonry use case is important though, but let's fix 
that in in a sane way
