**Additional Questions**
* What happens when your image is wider than the row or column gap? Can you tell the image to overlay on top of the elements or below? Should the user be able to control how it overlays or should it only be considered as a background-image? For instance, let's say you have a Pinterest board and when you pin an item you want to highlight that row and have an icon appear beside it that also overlaps the element.
* What if you wanted to be able to visualize each row or column that a grid element spans? With this you cannot tell if the first column is 1 row wide or potentially 5 rows wide unless this is intended to show every column that isn't spanned by an element.
* What if you wanted to do an alignment? Left, right, middle within the column or row? What if you wanted an alignment within the row/column gap?
* Does this also work with nested grids?
* Is there a way to control which items get row/grid lines. For instance:

```
item   |   item   |   item
----------------------------
blankblank....... |   item
```
Or in the case where you want it only on a single item in the row:
```
item | item | item
            ------
            | item
```
Or in between two items:
```
item | item | item
---------------------
     | item |
```
Or for another example:
```
item | item | item
     -------
     | item |
```
### Sebastian, to your point:

> When rules are overlapping, it needs to be defined whether the horizontal or the vertical rules are painted last, and if that is also something that should be controllable by authors. 

Could this be determined by setting a z-index value?
