section 17.5.3 of the CSS2.1 spec on "table height algorithms" 
(http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/tables.html#height-layout) states:

"CSS 2.1 does not define how the height of table cells and table rows is 
calculated when their height is specified using percentage values."

Why? Would it not be reasonable for the height of a row to be relative 
to the height of the table, height of a cell relative to height of its 
row or sum of the heights of the rows it spans? I know tables rows and 
cells don't share the containing block relationship that is used to 
calculate percentage heights normally, but this exception seems 
reasonable (noting the heights are only minimum heights)?

You can take this a comment, I dont expect reply.
