Just to clarify, the idea here is that if the headers of a table would
scroll off screen while the table itself is still visible, then they
would 'detach' from the table and act like fixpos boxes, staying
visible until the table is fully scrolled off of the screen.

This would avoid the need for table-internal scroll bars, as you want
to, in general, avoid page-internal scrolling if at all possible.
It's just ugly and not very usable.
