The docs seem ambiguous on this:  I searched the docs for "cell" and found a
few entries, including one which provides a definition of the word.  But the
Transcript Dictionary has no entry for cell, and I'm unfamiliar with an
addition that would make it possible to use it as a chunk type.

It may be the case that the word is allowable as a param to some of the
scripted libraries Rev uses to support its grid "objects".  Unfortunately I
wasn't able to find such info.

What did you turn up?
