Yes!

Can we also expose this to certified apps so that our Gaia developers can
start experimenting with using grids?

There isn't any useful layout code in the tree yet. The ETA for
anything that's worth experimenting with is still 3-4 weeks or so.

I think we can enable the pref for Nightly/Aurora at that point.
I'll send an update when that happens.

Getting user feedback on this is great. But we should make sure to
communicate clearly about how stable the code is, to avoid
dependencies on code that's likely to change. It's also good to set
clear expectations about when code that's on nightly/aurora is
likely to end up on beta and release.
