The current wording is suggests that the span attribute should be
ignored more often than was intended.

At http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml2/mod-tables.html#sec_29.2.
Please change:
User agents must ignore this attribute if the colgroup element
contains one or more col elements.
into something more like:
User agents must ignore this attribute's value on a colgroup element
if that colgroup contains one or more col elements.  Instead, the
value must be computed by summing the span attributes of the enclosed
col elements.
