Boris, seems I do not understand your question well....
First child of first row of table (inline-table) element will become block 
instead of table-cell.

This is just a short form of
table tr[@index=1] td[@index=1]

or following CSS 3 proposal you've mentioned (btw,thanks!)
table:nth-child(1):nth-child(1)

I am not sure though, is this a direct equivalent of my
table tr[@index=1] td[@index=1]  ?

I think that problems mentioned by Ian here is slightly outdated.
We already have Panteon full of different selectors. E.g. td[foo*=bar] is 
already not simple computationaly.

No as @ is such vendor prefix in this case.
BTW: We are using %% units heavily these days. Do you have any idea what is
vendor prefixes should we use for them?
