At the risk of upsetting people, why do we use the word "tableau" when most 
people would use "table"?  To me, this is what I call gratuitous pomposity. 
My concise dictionary's definition for tableau is:

    1. a pause on stage when all the performers briefly freeze in position. 
2. any dramatic group or scene.

Not particularly useful for someone who's first language isn't English!

Cheers,
