currently, browsers only apply background-color and maybe background-image css
to col and colgroup elements.  I don't know if this is the place for this, but
I think it would be proper for col and colgroup, row, and rowgroup to at
*least* have a class and
a style attribute, and other "on..." events associated with the global

also, MUCH more CSS would need to be applied to the col and colgroup, row and
rowgroup elements, with the reasoning that whatever you can do with the row and
rowgroup elements, you should be able to do with the col and colgroup elements.
 events, all kinds of css, etc.  not sure if an id would make sense on a column
- would it?  maybe.  depends on how you render it or treat it.

I think row and rowgroup are logical companions for col and colgroup.  I think
they should have been there ever since tables began.  
If you had a red row and green col in a cross formation, I would think that the
center would be red, unless the cell in the center has its own overriding
color, because I would think the row has a higher priority, it being the
closer-to-the-action element.
