What use is there in having non-CSS UAs that are able to draw borders, 
if authors aren't allowed to use the very HTML feature that triggers 
them to actually draw them?

Non-CSS UAS do not draw a single border unless one sets the border 
attribute to a non-zero value. The default styling of tables, is to not 
display the border.

I use your definition of Non-CSS UAs: [1]

	3.	User agents without CSS support or without scripting support, and 
certainly without ATs, which always use the default semantics of the 
Some examples of #3 are the text-based browsers, most search engines, 
and graphical browsers in which CSS or scripting are disabled.
