I am not familiar with the recent changes around dynamic cells.
Is there any discussion/summary that I can read to get up to speed?

My main thought is: if there are many "fixed OF cells" implementations
and only a few "dynamic" ones - does it make sense to flip the logic
and introduce a new "use_dynamic_of_cells" flag instead?


Best regards,
Martin
