I am guessing 4 x 4 spans of drywall might sag, though? How about 3 x 3 I wonder?
you and me both.

I am using a 2x2 recessed panel and I think it looks good with recessed lights
and blends in well. Not too complicated and easy to work with for access above. A 2x2 panel is easier to replace than a 4x4 or something like it, IMO. Also easier to store if you decide to save some panels for the future.

I found this source for a drywall grid system, although I've never used anything like this for an overhead drywall application. Maybe it will give you an option to consider for unusual reno situations.
