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.
