Your point was a known problem of table DTDs more than fifteen years 
ago, fantasai...

There is no real answer. Only one option is available : allow the style 
language to have dual inheritance using an id/idref (or equiv.) present 
in the markup... Grif (and probably then Amaya) resolved that with 
hard-coded algos.

This does not easily fit in the css model but I am going to think about it.
