    WOW! Just ... WOW! I realized I had it wrong about halfway through and had to transpose the grid. You could make it a Schr枚dinger and eliminate the symmetry-breaking entries. They were the hardest for me. I couldn't quite grok why you were saying 'descriptor' at first (6A
    6A ROWSDescriptor for all the grid entries in this direction
    , 3D
    3D DOWNDescriptor for all the grid entries in this direction
    ). Awesome puzzle. How big a grid could you do of this?

      I did consider a Schr枚dinger, but when I discovered the DOWN
      3D DOWNDescriptor for all the grid entries in this direction
      /ROWS
      6A ROWSDescriptor for all the grid entries in this direction
      pair I figured it'd be a nice little aha.
      In terms of something bigger, you'd have to get very lucky with pairs of entries, or even looser with the definitions. Or maybe cut some squares from the top-left corner of the grid so not everything need be 5+ letters long. If you want to give it a go, please tag me!

      Beautiful. Insane. Glorious.

        But thankfully, not BIG.

                Impressive! This must have been a pain to construct.

                        That was wonderful Kieran. I was having a hard time understanding 1D
                        1D OPRAQuartet of letters in the sentence "This crossword was not designed with ease-of-solving in mind, and is instead an attempt to put into practice a rough idea."
                        and 1A
                        1A OTDEQuartet of letters in the sentence "This crossword was not designed with ease-of-solving in mind, and is instead an attempt to put into practice a rough idea."
                        , but after filling in the rest, I had to reveal the O. CarTOON and CarPOOL were my favorite. It's beautiful how well this puzzle fit together.
