Where ? Can you show us a REC ? Or at least a CR version of the Tables 
CSS 3 module ?

I can explain.
And I can explain very easily : your test is just wrong. I have in front 
of me right now a table made with DIVs with the 'display' values needed 
for table, row and cell.
Btw, there is only one "table-*" property and a little bit more 
"table-*" display values.

Ah, if we now reach religious matters and studies about the existence of
