in what concerns tiling itself, quartering is the finest "granularity" i
could determine as u common usecase on comfortably sized full hd resolution
enabled monitor doing my every day work.

I've been mentioning a "grid" in connection to this topic, because tiling
is being implemented with Compiz Grid in Unity.
Useful grid stepping of default operations such as moving a window or
resizing it are closely interrelated with the invisible canvas on which
also tiling happens.
