--- Comment #4 from Nemo <federicol...@tiscali.it> ---
Thanks for your proposal and thanks Hatul for the patch. However, this is a
very drastic solution, highly controversial and unlikely to be suitable in
MediaWiki core, which needs to adapt to a huge variety of cases. I think the
current consensus is that it won't be accepted, so for the sake of clarity I'm
marking it as rejected (though the state of things ma change in the future).

Quoting Pau's comment from the patch (Pau is one of MediaWiki's designers):

And I believe
www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Requests_for_comment/Grid_system is
related, for a broader discussion of the issue.
