Will a table box ever establish a new stacking context, or will that always be
done by the table wrapper?

Given currently that we have to choose whether a property affects the table box
or the table wrapper box (and can't have both), it seems sensible to have all
properties which induce stacking contexts apply to the table wrapper box.

In particular, 'z-index' should act on the table wrapper box, and added weight
is given by the fact that 'position' acts on the table wrapper box.

[In general, 'opacity', 'transform', and other properties that can trigger a
stacking context should specify that they act on the table wrapper box, in
their respective specifications, until such time as the css3-table spec is
