Guidelines is not a Grid, because

1. Guidelines don't need to specify rows and cols amount. In different
cases the guideline count is dependent to the box width or height
2. In Grid Layout each content block should have specified place:
grid-column: 1; grid-row: 1. In Guidelines Layout it's not required.
3. In Grid Layout, if any box have fixed position, DOM manipulations
with it have not sense. Guidelines don't fix the box position, authors
might rearrange boxes over DOM Core methods

Guidelines is more flexible.
