Here is a complete patch for issue 72[1].

The resolution of the issue was to take the text from Saloni[2] and add 
that column and table widths are undefined if extra columns are 
rendered. Which gives:

Change in section 17.5.2.1[3] the phrase in the last but one paragraph:

    then additional columns must not be rendered.

to

    then additional columns may not be rendered. CSS 2.1 does not define
    the width of the columns and the table if they *are* rendered.
