Thanks, Pat, that's good info.

Interestingly, spanspec uses can be converted into uses of namest and 
nameend--that's why we omitted spanspec from the Exchange model--so
if you don't use tfoot or entrytbl, you could probably be using the
Exchange table markup (and your existing tables could probably be
converted into Exchange tables, fwiw).
