AFAICT, painting the backgrounds in rows/column layers cuts
across colspanned/rowspanned table cells in both the
separated and collapsed border models. If I'm striping black
and white, the text would become unreadable in either model.

table w/ first column & second row black:

+-----------------+---------------+
|########         |               |
|###White text    | Black text    |
|########         | Black text    |
+--------+--------+,Black text,,,,|
|#White##|#White##|#Black text####|
|#text###|#text###|#Black text####|
|########|########|###############|
+--------+--------+---------------+
