Yes, I just noticed this too. I believe this is a hold-over from the
DSSSL way of specifying borders on table objects.

It would only seem to be a problem when border-collapse=collapse. Then
the border from adjacent cells could be in conflict.

I am assuming that there is no conflict between "cell borders" and "row
or column or table borders", since the spec says (7.34.2): "Rows,
columns, row groups, and column groups cannot have borders (i.e., user
agents must ignore the border properties for those elements)."

I interpret this to mean that any borders specified on those objects
only serve to provide inherited values to cells which don't explicitly
specify a value, but are not to be rendered, so they can't be in
conflict. (In fact, there are no row or column "areas" on which to apply
the traits, so they can only be propagated to the cell areas.)
