@fantasai Is there a technical reason that requires that explicitly noted exclusion in Grid/Flexbox? 
Specifying for example "columns: 3; display:grid;" seems like a useful feature to have.  It would result in an outer column-wrapper box (or whatever the term is) with three column boxes that have grid layout instead of block layout. The layout would be similar to:
```html
<div style="columns:3">
  <div style="display:grid">
...
  </div>
</div>
```
except you don't need to introduce the redundant extra element.
