I don't think this is fixable, but I just wanted to note that rule #4 in
   https://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/tables.html#border-conflict-resolution
is designed backwards. The table should win over the col/rowgroup which
should win over the row/col which should win over the cell.

The common use case for this is darker borders on rowgroups vs. lighter
ones on cells. The rowgroup borders are more important, even though they
are less specific.
