A grid is not necessarily on the bottom. In Sketch, for instance, the
grid is just a special layer and you can have it anywhere you want in
the layer stack, at the bottom, at the top or in the middle between the
other layers. The default is even at the top, because I find that that
is more useful because you can always see the grid points.

Eventually, Sketch will likely allow several grid layers each of which
can be separately switched on and off.

But nevertheless, overriding the canvas background would probably be
useful for some applications.
