Thank you for this question.

Tables have historically been a source of access problems.  We put
some features in HTML4 and there is now enough time past to take
a fresh look.

I believe we can get back to you within a week or two.  If HTML WG needs
some other timeline, I would be happy to hear from Dan or Chris with an
requested due date.
