Appropriate use of Grid Role


From: Brian Lovely

I see a lot of ARIA Grids used to display tabular data. Some of these
tables may be sortable, or may contain buttons or checkboxes in one column.
Is ARIA Grid an appropriate role for these purposes?

If not, what is grid intended for? I see references to an interactive grid,
but I'm not sure what that means. The only interactive grids I can think of
off the top of my head are date pickers or spread sheets.
