After reading through this again and thinking about it over the
holiday weekend, I've decided that I'm pretty loathe to make any
decisions here without a real table layout algorithm.  I can imagine
any of the possibilities I come up with ending up being incompatible
with a simple algorithm, or further complicating what is already
likely to be a fairly complex algorithm.

I'm also pretty certain that, like Brad, I just don't have enough of
an intuitive grasp on how table layout works in the browser quite yet,
and thus anything I try to decide on will be somewhat arbitrary.

So I'm reasonably certain that I support making it explicitly undefined in 2.1.
