What about TBODY? The above example would also be useful on a table  
body. or something like this, in which the radius for the table or  
tbody is larger than the row height:

         XX^^          |          ^^XX
        X^ ____________|_____________^X
       XX              |              XX
       X               |               X
       XX _____________|____________  XX
        Xv             |             vX
         XXvv          |          vvXX

If so, then I think then there should be a note that it will be  
tackled in a future spec, and that until that time, border radii on  
TRs and TDs (and TBODYs and THEADs?) must be ignored.
