Joshue O Connor, Gez Lemon and I have completed the deliverable for
Action 72. It is at:
http://esw.w3.org/topic/HTML/Action72Headers

We request that the definition of the headers attribute in the spec be
extended to allow it to reference a td. This would make it possible
for complex data tables to be marked up accessibly.

The headers/id markup is functional and works today. Results of some
recent testing:

This issue's history from May 2007 to present:

Thank you.

Best Regards,
Laura
