I see. I didn't find this sentence in the spec myself.

OK, then. Wouldn't this be something to be worth amending the spec with? It 
would save a lot of CSS necessary to achieve the same result right now. Not 
to mention the additional HTML.

Borders are not applied on table rows in the separated borders
model. You can only have borders on cells and the table itself then.

http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/REC-CSS2-20110607/tables.html#separated-borders

"Rows, columns, row groups, and column groups cannot have borders (i.e.,
user agents must ignore the border properties for those elements)."
