Also, none of my proposals explain how the different possibilities
influence the rules for distributing excess table height (from the
'height') property to the rows.  (Distribution of excess
height/width generally prefers rows/columns that don't have a
specified height/width, and also happens in proportion to various
heights/widths.)

I think that argues even more strongly for leaving this undefined in
CSS 2.1.  I think trying to define it requires defining the full
table layout algorithm.  (However, I'm not sure we try to say that
the table height rules are undefined.  We definitely say the width
rules are undefined.)
