You'd have a traversal algorithm that would collect the headers for a  
given cell based on the table model. As opposed to splitting the headers  
attribute on space characters and then invoking getElementById() on the  
returned values. If there are lots of tables out there that currently use  
the headers= attribute and end users rely on them I suppose the traversal  
algorithm should take that into account, as Maciej suggested earlier.
