Do you have test cases (even informal ones) for that?

I agree that we want to match current implementations when they agree rather than define a new behavior, but when it comes to table fragmentation, I think we ought to include non-browser implementations as well (vivliostyle, prince, antenna house, pdf reactor...), as they tend to have paid a lot more attention to fragmentation than browsers have.

I have not run the tests, so I don't know if they're different or not. And even if they are, maybe we'll want to overrule them. But we should at least check.
