To be fair, I do not see a lot of benefits in these “layout” components nowdays considering how flex and grid are fairly easy to use. Also, I always get a nasty itch when I see styling with JS. Maybe, the greatest benefit I see here are already styled components (buttons, inputs, selects...) and easy swap between light and dark themes.

You're right, the only layout component I found easier to use was SimpleGrid but as you say nowadays it's pretty easy with normal CSS, the value is in styled components.
