My motivation is different. If you have any macro in a table (or anything 
that requires multiple runs to get the size right) that uses a counter 
(e.g., enumeration), then the numbers will be off. That would not happen 
if a counter is frozen when trialtypesetting is on.

combinations only give regular grid. Sometimes you want an irregular grid. 
For example, the OP wanted

|      |      |
|      | Fig2 |
| Fig1 +------+
|      | Fig3 |
|      |      |

Such layouts are not possible using combinations.
