For row there is row height property. As far as cell is concerned height property and associated functionality are in trouble. After all cell might have no content at all but still have borders and/or background image(s). And when it has content proposal seems to imply that you will not be able to align content while keeping border box fixed. There are also border collapse issues involved and if I am unlucky I18N issue (attempt to use 28/12 beyond its scope).
