I suggest:

Section 6.2.1 "Automatic Grid Item Placement Algorithm" should be 
renamed to "Grid Item Placement Algorithm" (and similarly for 
<dfn>auto-placement algorithm</dfn>), since the algorithm takes also 
takes care of items that are not auto-positioned. It is important to 
define that this happens first, and that automatic placement only 
considers areas that are still "free" afterwards.

This algorithm and its parent section 6.2 "Automatic Placement: the 
grid-auto-flow property" (and the corresponding introductory paragraph 
at the beginning of section 6) should be moved under section 8 "Placing 
Grid Items" (rather than section 6 "The Implicit Grid") since it is more 
strongly related to the former than the latter. Section 6 could say "The 
size of the <a>implicit grid</a> is determined by the <a>placement 
algorithm</a>" instead.
