== [css-grid] Clarify behavior of position: fixed grid items ==
Something that keeps coming up is the behavior of grid items set to 
`position: fixed`.

My understanding of this is that an item set to position: fixed should
 behave in the same way as one set to position: absolute, so that 
would correspond to [10.2 With a Grid Container as 
parent](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-grid/#static-position) which 
seems to be what the 2 implementations are doing. [CodePen 

However this is a bit confusing if you haven't made that connection. 
So if this is correct behavior perhaps a note could be added to 
clarify that this is how position fixed items will behave. It also 
seems as if having a fixed item be contained within it's track might 
be useful - but perhaps that is a different issue.
