It will not be necessary if browsers implement CSS 3 and XBL:

http://www.w3.org/TR/xbl/

If you want to see current drafts revising the table model, please see:

http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/section-tabular.html#tabular

http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml2/mod-tables.html

See also the draft WCAG 2.0 advice on tables:

http://urlx.org/w3.org/05156

Note that suggestions for HTML rather than XHTML 2 should preferably be 
directed to the new HTML working group not this list:

What do you mean? Are you basing your interpretation of HTML on 
Microsoft Word's user interface rather than the specification?
