As for the inheritance, I see no difficulty in it: table-columns are
to host inheritable features for their cell descendants (I mean descendants
in the area tree, not in the result tree). Rules for table-related
issues (layer precedence etc) are relatively well elaborated in CSS2,
and we plan to implement it in a similar fashion.

A thing I probably miss: why do you need a special 'column-align'?
Do you see a special trait here that cannot be expressed by the old
poor "text-align"?
