I believe the CSS WG has no plans to go forward on this draft.  See the thread starting http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2011Dec/0296.html

For me it is different, much easier to read, powerful and more compact than Grid Layout.

That's great, but no one is planning to write the spec or implement it...

Template Layout has been moved to CSS4.

> Template Layout has been moved to CSS4.

There is no such thing as "CSS4" (https://drafts.csswg.org/css-2015/#css-levels). The last published version of this spec has a "Working Group Note" status effectively meaning that the work on it has been stopped (https://www.w3.org/2015/Process-20150901/#tr-end). The latest Editor's draft has the following remark:
> This document currently serves as a repository for ideas around using templates
> for laying out elements, regions or pages; and for various alternative layout models.
> It is expected to be updated, but it is not expected to become a W3C Recommendation
> in this form. Instead, ideas may migrate to other modules of CSS.

Maybe it's time to close this issue as not relevant anymore and open the new one when those other modules incorporate these ideas?
