The table-wrapper-box vs table-grid-box is a concept for which only those who give it credit will find issues to solve. These issues do not exist in the first place 🤷‍♂️

There is no need for two table boxes. The only "real" table box is what the specs call the "table wrapper box". In this case like in all others that involve anything table-related besides painting, that is the only box we will ever need to consider. 

Unfortunately, the specs were written the other way around, and caused a close-to-infinite confusion.
