To clarify, the *first* question (empty inline-table) is a known issue.

The second question has a well-defined answer: if an inline-table 
consists of a single row which consists of a single empty cell, then the 
baseline of the inline-table coincides with the baseline of the row 
which coincides with the bottom content edge of the cell.
