Well, its better than nothing. Thank you, Anders, that does let me
proceed with my work in a way that's compatible with the spec.

but its surely mildly silly?

indeed. why would 
   text-align="from-table-column('text-align')" 
not be the default? if there is no table-column, it can inherit in the 
normal way.

made rather complicated for simple use.
