Yes, and yes.

We'll certainly be using (parts of) blocks and tiles. I'm not too sure 
about plone.app.page and the rest of the deco stack - but then I'm not 
very familiar with that code base.

We're not going to "fix deco" or boil any other specific ocean.

What I propose is to take a fresh look at the layout/rendering patterns 
we have and work from first principles, to come up with an evolutionary 
approach that moves us towards a responsive grid layout engine, while 
maintaining "good enough" backward compatibility.

That may well end up with a solution close to the original Deco vision. 
It may also end up with a different mechanism that avoids whatever it 
was that stalled Deco.

For me personally, this effort is shaped by a specific use case which is 
less about an editor tweaking pages, and more about full personalization 
and layout optimization driven by software algorithms. My hope is, that 
this unconventional angle will contribute to discovering new and viable 
approaches to page composition.
