Indeed.  Such an idea was tossed around with respect to rows as a 
possible use of the 'thead' and 'tbody' tags.  However, there is no 
current provision in CSS or elsewhere for the same effect in columns.  
As it stands most small screens scroll the whole page horizontally or 
clip; essentially the kind of uncomfortable browsing experience that 
makes designing for small screens so different.
