No, it's not for layout. There is a large traditional table, although I shrunk it for the posting.
And a few of the columns should be links. And as I have figured it, I would have to make the
anchor block-level if I want it to span the whole table-cell. So why is this not possible?
If it had been a div or anything else, it would have been possible to work around with positioning.
But I can't position anything on the vertical scale, if it is inside an anchor?
It just looks weird when I try to.
Here's a little more extensive code:

<table border="1">
      <img title="This image makes the row slightly higher than 1em.">
    <td>Some text</td>
    <td>Some more text</td>
    <td><a href="#" style="background-color: red; display: block; height: 100%;">Clickable text.
You should be able to click anywhere in the cell,
not just on the text.</a>

The link-text lines up at the very top of the cell, which makes it differ from the previous columns,
which have vertical-align:middle style.
