Overview, my opinions only:
I liked it more the way it was on the last draft. There are now
several implementations of tables out there (NCSA, Netscape, ...)
and this draft proposes things which I haven't seen used or
The draft is too wordy, and doesn't read like a specification.
Comments like the one suggesting that user agents should
create a scrolling table should be removed.
The border styles stuff is unnecessary. I liked BORDER better in
the last draft -- on or off.
The alignment character stuff is unnecessary. I've seen no
implementations of this.
The THEAD, TBODY, and TFOOT stuff is unnecessary.
