i think this is a good point and i support it. but it should not include 
the tab-navigation.

+1 - it makes the table structure one dimension simpler and is therefore 
easier to understand. complex structures are IMHO the #1 accessibility 
and usability issue with tables.

+1, IRC this has been the original idea (but maybe it was depreciated 
later).
"read more about this issue in the evaluation report"

+1 see above

i would prefer "show success criteria(s)"

do you mean fractions at the principal level? then i agree. but i do 
strongly disagree at the guideline level. but we don not have the words 
fail / pass there.

disagree. more indentations would make the tabel even more difficult to 
read and would not improve the general appearance.

let the native speakers decide.

i like liams styling if we drop the principal-level (this is too dark).

hope that helps.
