I should add to the previous explanation that if some cells have height, or if the row has an height, or if there are spanning cells forcing some rows to grow, things are still a bit different wrt a flow of inline-block in the sense that there is this additional constraints that may apply. If we had to think in terms of flow, I think the impact is roughly the same as if every line started with an anonymous inline-block of width 0px and of height being the height of the imposed height, with a vertical-align of top (because cells will lower their bottom to accommodate that constraint, if I recall correctly)

Hopefully this comparison of `vertical-align` between block flows and table-rows has cleared up why it does not affect the cells in their own axis and rather affect cells in the axis of the row,
