 Yes, I think so. Just to be totally clear: the MDGrid is _just_ the grid
part of the control. It's completely generic and quite independent of lmi
and so can be developed, tested and so on independently. Now, of course,
the entire product editor is very lmi-specific and will be implemented on
top of MDGrid and will deal with changing the axis in accordance with the
item chosen in the tree.

 I still have the impression that I don't understand what do you mean :-(
You can select the axis in the prototype and you can also select the set of
values for one of them ("strike", by choosing the min and max values --
this is equivalent of "duration" in lmi product editor). What exactly is

 I've just reread it but I still don't manage to see what are we missing
right now. Could you please give an example of what should be possible but
is not (in the current prototype)?

 Thanks in advance!
