Never saw the previous; don't quite follow who said it nor what it means, precisely.

The problem w/ that solution is that it then doesn't have the enclosing box line across the top x-axis which looks funky imo. Whichever box is 'on' leaves it's tick artifacts from the primary on the secondary which is fine as long as there aren't two competing scales.
If turn box 'off' for both, then have to draw the bounding line individually. I still think the facility to turn them off on the individual axes under user control is a desirable enhancement.
