Grid with "using" statement.

Until now I have implemented the grid as an extention method of HtmlHelper. It works with a column builder, like the sample bellow:

Html.Grid(m => m.Id).Columns(column => {
            column.ForData(m => m.Id);
            column.ForData(m => m.Name);
            column.ForData(m => m.Email);
            column.ForData(m => m.Deleted);

But I'm thinking to change it to a class (named ModelViewGrid) that uses the "using" statement like the ModelViewForm class. It would look like that:

using(var grid = Html.Grid(m => m.Id/* grid global options */)) {
            grid.AddDataColumn(m => m.Id);
            grid.AddDataColumn(m => m.Name);
            grid.AddDataColumn(m => m.Email);
            grid.AddDataColumn(m => m.Deleted);

It doesn't look like a big difference but there is some changes mostly in the scope of the grid object and the how the data is available for each statement.
More about that later...
