Rather than inventing a whole new gadget, why not just
encourage user agents to usefully parse something like:

  <form ...>
  <table border=0 ...>
  <tr><th>Role</th> <th>Name</th>
  <select name="selection" type="nodrop">
  <tr><option value="1"><td>Lead</td> <td>Fred</td>
  <tr><option value="2"><td>Sidekick</td> <td>Barney</td>
  <tr><option value="3"><td>Wife</td> <td>Wilma</td>

Even on an older browser, this will give you an ugly
drop-down list with misaligned headings, but it will send
correct values back to the action URL.
