Yeah, looks like they all agree, right? Having to set width:100% to make the table take up all available width  of the multicol content box is only sensible, since a table with auto width will "shrink to fit".

See https://www.w3.org/TR/2011/REC-CSS2-20110607/tables.html#auto-table-layout

"If the 'table' or 'inline-table' element has 'width: auto', the used width is the greater of the table's containing block width, CAPMIN, and MIN. However, if either CAPMIN or the maximum width required by the columns plus cell spacing or borders (MAX) is less than that of the containing block, use max(MAX, CAPMIN)."
