Great to see this on the spec.

Maybe tracks-gap ?

I agree with you too in 1) and 3).

Anyway, I think the spec needs an extra modification in the grid sizing
algorithm. I guess that the gutters should be subtracted when we
calculate the size of the flexible tracks.
For example, if you've a grid with "width: 500px; column-gap: 100px;
grid-template-columns: 1fr 1fr;", I guess that the columns should have
"200px" width.
