That would be equivalent to shipping Regions with only element-based
region containers. The reason many people in the WG are against that
is because it encourages bad markup design. Shipping grid without
subgrid also encourages bad markup design. Worse, in fact, because it
requires *stripping* markup that otherwise would be there, not just
adding in a few extraneous empty elements.

So I find this proposal problematic and I find your logic inconsistent.
