In DocBook, a "table" (as opposed to an "informaltable") is formal
and hence the title (aka caption) is required.  I suspect that's
why the caption is required in this case.

It sounds like you're referring to the caption attributes, but
you show the table attributes above, so I'll try to answer for both.

As far as I can tell, the only attribute we don't allow on caption
that HTML 4.01 does is align, and that's a styling issue which is
probably why Norm left it off.

It doesn't appear that sdocbook is missing any of the HTML table 
attributes you list above.
