FWIW I have begun implementing the tables section of the HTML5 spec with the 
eventual aim of producing a simple webtool that will take a page, extract the 
tables, and provide some means of visualizing the cell-headers relationships 
determined by a variety of algorithms. The eventual goal is to enable rapid 
prototyping of new algorithms for matching cells and headers so their 
effectiveness on real-world content can be evaluated.

No promises of a time frame as I have quite a lot of other things going on at 
the moment...
