Subject: scope attribute on <entry> from proposal 62

I'm working on fixing attribute tables and encountered this new definition for @scope on <entry>:

The scope attribute can contain one of "row" or "col" or "rowgroup" or "colgroup".
scope="row"Applies to the row.
scope="col"Applies to the column.
scope="rowgroup"Applies to the row group.
scope="colgroup"Applies to the column group.

Scott (or somebody else) - can you clarify what this means? From this I really only know what values are legal, but I don't know what it means.

Does the use of this attribute imply that the entry is a header, or is this attribute only valid when the entry is already identifiable as a header?

Also, can you clarify what a "row group" or "column group" are? My best guess is that a row group would be all rows covered by the current entry, if the entry spans rows - but I need to confirm that before it goes into the specification.
