I agree with you Andrea. Also while I was voting table as core I was 
thinking on this particular issue and I think that the 'tables' property 
perhaps should be splitted in 'table_Support' and table_support with 
certain restrictions such as the number of columns that are properly 
managed by the browser ...

Best Regards
