Just making sure, how would you resolve percentages when columns are set to "auto" and the grid has no explicit width? Actually, the issue is more glaring when you think about a grid that has "height: auto" and implicit rows.

I guess the use case for percentages is when the grid has a definite size for the grid-gap axis, right?
