There are indeed a few edge cases where the content might overflow its cell.

There is however no interest from Microsoft in allowing devs to optimize/tweak table layouts; we want to encourage developers to use display:grid instead (and benefit from the new, fast algorithm we have there instead of trying to fiddle with the performance of tables).

As you mentioned, there is already a functionally-equivalent solution using position:absolute, so we are not impacting author's ability to do things by not adding support for table-cells in layout containment.
