I saw this. I think checking of align= attr and span/repeat numbers
is not a big problem when all elements (TABLE, THEAD?, TBODY?, TR, TD, TH)
already understands align= attributes.

No. Perhaps major html mastering tools do not know about this
(or perhaps this is intentional for HTML3.2 compatible browsers benefit).
Well, this type of alignment could be done directly by adding an attribute
to each respective <TD> and <TH> elements but this is not error prone
unless you prepare the page with a mastering tool.

I just construct my own table and found out a useful attribute.
IMHO, raws and columns should behave in rather symmetrical way,
that is why bgcolor= may be introduced in raws OR columns (not the case
in HTML4.0, perhaps due to conflict resolving issues)
and [horizontal] align= attribute more preferred in column element
rather than in <TR> or many <TD>'s.
