Oh I see. I guess Justus was suggesting a way to emulate (part of) the 
desired layout capabilities by means of existing markup.
I agree that tables are a bit hackish (as they are in most cases in HTML).

Exactly. And my suggestion to introduce some new 'box' markup was 
precisely meant to provide hooks similar to HTML divs, so somewhere else 
an appropriate layout could be attached to it. To keep it minimally 
invasive, it could be restricted to be direct children of 
foil/foilgroup, so no actual DB vocabulary would be affected by it.
