@fantasai I can understand why you'd say that, but when you start putting real events on a calendar and have to account for accessibility, performance, and responsiveness, we've found that it is impossible to make it work with a table. Using a grid allows us to build AT navigable markup while presenting a conventional calendar view at many different resolutions and as new events are added we don't have to re-calculate (and re-paint) inline markup for the entire table.

With some events:

I hope that additional context makes it easier to understand why I think this is a valid case for this feature. If there is more detail I can provide please let me know or if you're aware of a way to do this with a table I'd be thrilled to make that work, so please correct me if I'm missing that option.
