That when CSS is making it's pass to determine what selectors apply
you can't have pseudo-class selectors based on other properties
because those properties could change in the the selector that
includes or depends on the pseudoclass.

td:column(2)
{
    display: block;
}

is kind of silly really and it prevents selecting based on property.
