  * When the data source was initialized from the DOM, will changes  
to the datagrid be reflected back to the DOM?
  * Is the datagrid a replaced element for the purposes of CSS or  
tree of anonymous/generated boxes?
  * What parts (if any) are expected to map to native widgets in  
  * Is datagrid useful for any purpose without scripting? If yes,  
please give an example.
  * What is datagrid expected to look like in visual UAs?
  * Is datagrid rendering expected to have pixel-consistent metrics  
across visual UAs?

Answers to these would help a lot in setting up expectations against  
which the normative part could be understood.
