@davidsgrogan and I discussed this as the face to face. We agreed that
 how Edge currently handle this is the best approach. Additionally, I 
shared that this is the same approach that Excel utilizes when hiding 
a row of data, that they clip the content that is still visible in the
 spanning cell. And while I can sympathize with the desire mentioned 
by @FremyCompany in the initial statement brought up at TPAC. What I 
would like to stress here, is that we currently don't have any interop
 in this feature, besides that of the FF/Edge do re-layout the table 
wrapper, which will cause the same issues raised. I recommend that we 
do not cause the overflow from row into another like FF does as that 
makes the visible data unusable in some circumstances. I'd like to get
 this solution resolved in a way that makes sense for what you're 
trying to achieve: collapse a row, in a relatively straight forward 
way to implement and specify.
