It strikes me that using this method it becomes more of a folding grid than a flexible grid. At each of the different breakpoints it is necessary to apply some max-width magic to the container for the percentages to apply and for your page elements to line up nicely on your grid. This isn’t a problem necessarily but it does mean you lose the magic of the flexible grid between the breakpoints if you want to remain true to your underlying grid.
