You are right. 'row' / 'column' in fact seems to be easier.

I mean something like

<table:table-template table:top-left-corner="row" ...>
   <table:top-row table:style-name="graystyle"/>

That is, we use the terms "top" whenever the top (or first) row is 
referenced and "left" whenever the left (or first) column is referenced.
