I'd say there's a special home cell on each slice. Ted?

Depends on the dimensions. Probably there will be separate ranks for the
current set of all dimensions and the set of dimensions per each slice.

No, s.0 is the "current space" where everything is. There is stuff there.
But this is not really related to the second part of your question: we can
define that to be so anyway.
