Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-tables] visibility: collapse

Something came up while Blink was implementing row collapsing. (Which just landed on trunk, should be available in 2017-07-28 canary after enabling "Experimental Web Platform features" in chrome://flags/). says
> If the table-cell is spanning more than one table-track, and the table-track is set to visibility: collapse then **clip the content to the table-cell’s border-box**.

If the cell's content overflowed **only** because of visibility:collapse then clipping to the border box makes perfect sense. But if a rowspan cell already has overflow ( and then one of the rows it spans is collapsed, the existing overflow also disappears.

That's what happens in Edge (modulo the painting bug) and what @joysyu implemented in Blink.

Was losing the existing overflow considered? I think it'd be surprising to a web author.
