Is there a screen that doesn't work with grid mode and cannot be used,
or is this hyperbole and do you really just mean to say "I prefer
absolute mode?"

It would be really helpful if we can actually talk about the problem and
solutions rather than resorting to hyperbole.

I'd like to repeat my questions regarding DPI, screen size, and stylus
vs finger - do we actually intend to treat different DPI screens with
the same resolution differently? If not, is there any reason a "first
draft" of these screens can't be done in the simulator, to be tweaked if
it doesn't work well on the target?
