Note that in http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2012May/0438.html
Morten points out the following:

BTW: When it comes to "the other non-block container thing", namely
tables, it looks like we have all agreed to honor overflow:hidden, while
overflow:scroll and overflow:auto are treated as overflow:visible...

So we should first decide whether tables are a special case or whether the
described behaviour will be typical of formatting contexts.
