The CSS2 table model defines:

http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/tables.html#q2 :
] table-header-group (In HTML: THEAD)
]    Like 'table-row-group', but for visual formatting, the row group is
]    always displayed before all other rows and rowgroups and after any
]    top captions. Print user agents may repeat [header] rows on each
]    page spanned by a table.

This isn't entirely clear to me.

Suppose a page contains a very long table that won't fit in the UA's
viewport (I'm referring to screen media here).  The user has scrolled
down to the bottom of the page, viewing the last few rows of the table.

Is it intended that the implementation draw the table-header-group
at the top of the viewport, even though the top of the table isn't
