That doesn't quite work because, on my system at least, the nested grid still does not quit fill the space, leaving a noticeable gap at the top. The technique of nested grids sounds nice, but in my view if one wants coloring and dividers in the nested part of the grid the Grid command still lacks adequate control. It is probably better to use the finest grid division and fill in the parts programmatically (or by hand) using Spanning.
