Yes, I know there's a fallback mechanism defined, but I believe when it comes to tables that fallback mechanism might be unfortunate: First it would join cell contents. Some spacing or separation between cells horizontally would be in order (even though column margins cannot be maintained). And a <br/> between rows would also be necessary to make sure different rows in the table end up on different rows in the output.
