[CSS21] Values of 'overflow' applying to (inline-)table elements are restricted in major UAs

In [1], Morten Stenshorne noted that, when applying the 'overflow' 
property to table elements, all the major UAs appear to ignore all 
values except 'visible', 'hidden', 'inherit'.

This is filed at https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=18497 
and I have added some test cases which support the claim.

We should decide whether to formalize that behaviour in the spec.
