Same here. To be very clear I'm not suggesting this is unimportant; but we do have modules 
and levels to enable iterative progress. As editors and implementers of the feature it's
natural to assume we have a bias to move forward; but said bias does come with a couple of 
years' worth of experience with a *subset* of the current ED to lay out content and UI 
throughout a major OS. 

It's also very likely, however, that we haven't yet touched some use-cases. But while a 
concrete extension proposal is welcome at any time we are most interested in real-world 
use-cases e.g. not just "if you write a form with this kind of markup, then..." but 
"this site lays out their form using list items positioned in a grid; using/ migrating to 
css3-grid-layout would be hard for them because....".  In other words, a compelling 
argument demonstrating that Level 1 is not complete enough for authors because of X, Y and Z.

(Fwiw my preference at the moment would be to attempt simplifying Level 1 in reasonable ways
in order to reach Last Call faster instead of adding to it).
