> [pcupp] Unification of all layout types into one is not a goal for the grid.  If that's the goal of the new layout your proposing that's fine, but just to be clear it isn't feedback that I can act on.

Because it goal for the guidelines.

>>Every author's solution, IMO, should as simple as possible. I don't want to create dozens of media queries, megabytes of CSS for every specific case, browser should rearrange the content automatically.
>>This is dreams of many coders. Grid layout is not better than floats or tables (display: table-cell), this is different view of one thing.
> [pcupp] The grid isn't better or worse, but it is substantially different than both floats and tables.  It addresses a different set of scenarios like dividing up the space in a viewport or building a control out of HTML primitives.  I like to compare the grid to absolute positioning, except instead of using lengths to specify the position of the item, you express the position using grid lines; the location of which can be determined by sizing functions that space the grid lines based on a length, the contents between two lines, or remaining space in the grid.

I think, Tables + Flexes + Regions may completely substitute Grid layout
