I recall that at some point this approach (fixed height + 
`overflow:auto` for `tbody`) actually worked, maybe in Firefox 1. The 
possibility to make part of a table scrollable without breaking 
vertical dependencies of columns (as existing solutions like 
`position:fixed` for `thead` do) seems really useful. Maybe it would 
make sense to introduce a new value of `table-layout` (or a new 
property) that would switch this behavior on?
