While reviewing the properties in the vocabulary I started thinking  
about tables. As the property is defined now I think it mostly  
useless. Most browsers installed in a device in the last 2-3 years  
will support a simple table. If a designer is aiming for a simple  
table with two columns and 2-3 rows, something that would be OK on  
most screens and would fit well if you wanted to display something  
like stocks will work without problems. If it works easily, there's  
probably no reason to define a property for it.

As things are now, my vote would be NOT to add it to the Core  
Vocabulary. I think it would be more interesting to have one or more  
properties that go in more detail. Something that tells how many rows  
are supported or how many columns. Something that tells us if  
background colors in cells are supported.

If you have experience in the field and would like to share ideas  
you're welcome.
