There are issues missing on the list.

Sometimes, it is only better wording, introduction, assisting the careful
reader. One important one IMO is:
[CSS 2.1] WD 07 Dec. 2010: section 9.5.2 Introductory subsections and
sentences to orient reader
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2010Dec/0194.html

Another issue which I wonder (am not sure) if it should be explicitly said
in the spec relates to how border-spacing is implemented between 2
table-row-groups.

"The lengths specify the distance that separates adjoining cell borders."
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/tables.html#separated-borders

I think such definition is sufficiently clear: border-spacing should apply
once, only once, between contiguous cells of same row-group or of
different row-groups.

Please examine
