I agree with Manuel that this sounds like a useful feature, and we
should probably address it at some point.

However, this seems like a relatively low-priority feature, and
there's no issue with adding it in the future, so I'd like to defer it
to Grid 2.  I've tracked it in
<https://wiki.csswg.org/spec/css-grid-2>.
