Subject: use cases for "is-subtable" attribute

Dear TC members,

from my point of view the main use case for the "is-subtable" attribute 
is the case, when a certain table cell inside a regular table is splitted.

Think of a table consisting of two columns and 100 rows. If the user - 
for whatever purpose - splits a certain table cell of such a table 
vertically, it is in my eyes more sensible to reflect this split by a 
nested table with "is-subtable" attribute set. In my eyes the user 
doesn't intend to add another column to the table and set the col-span 
of 99 table cell from 1 to 2.

As Andreas J. Guelzow in his mail - see 
http://www.oasis-open.org/archives/office/200706/msg00115.html - already 
pointed out, the tranformation from a table containing a nested table 
with "is-subtable" attribute set to a table build up using row-span and 
col-span can be very 'painful'.

Regards, Oliver.
