Other than the notion of a column (or columns) of row headers, the above
seems like just another way of doing what you can the existing HTML (you
might want to check out <col> and <colgroup>).

There does seem to be a lack in the area of row and column headers - with
coupled but independent scrolling of the body (for large tables).  As to
what form that should take, I as yet have no opinion.
