Here's another example for you, of something that has a semantic
meaning, and is displayed as a table:

A feature matrix.

Ie. something that has a set of products on one axis and a set of
features on the other axis, and yes/no in the elements (or
"implemented/not implemented" or "in version >=2.0").

I think this is something that's frequently seen in DocBook type
