Definitely a possibility. Clearly different than a database "table",
which could give the wrong impression of always being 1-to-1 with a
db table, and it is not tied too closely to html tables, which may
not be how it is shown anyway.

Also "nested grids" gives a good visual picture that the phrase
"nested repeaters" never managed to conjure in my mind.  +1 "grid"
