Yes and no... there are different things that this idea can mean. the 
documentation system of GridFlow does separate part of the presentation, 
as for example, the look of each section heading is completely determined 
by an abstraction, and the abstractions know the rules and know how to 
move themselves downwards on the canvas to leave enough space for other 
objects (you have to see it to understand) but the positions of the 
objects are still saved in the file even though most of them could be set 
to 0 0 when saving the file and the process of reloading the file would 
automatically reposition them (this latter repositioning already works).

[inlet] [inlet~] [outlet] [outlet~] have behaviour that depends greatly on 
their x location.
