I think this addition is great, just mention that a similar effect can
be done via Content Distribution alignment, but having something to add
directly to the grid syntax would be more powerful, indeed.

would have an 'auto' value for this property. I mean, trying not to be

Should we have any overflow handling logic for these gaps ? Perhaps
something similar to what Box Alignment provides, so we can reduce
proportionally all gaps to fit in container's size.
