Personally I think the slicing a grid approaches encourages a habit in
web-design that should be strongly discouraged. The habit to use
pixels as measurement unit for interfaces / designs, never displays
_will_ have higher resolution, and designs created need to accommodate
wider ranges of resolutions.

It should be possible to create elements for such designs with tools
provided; but this is a very narrow use case; that I personally would
hope wouldn't be a focal point for how to use GIMP when creating
designs for the web.
