Other changes are aimed at helping the authors of the "how will this look in HTML" spec to have a more consistent document model for the XML vocabulary, particularly around author-generated anchors and automatically-generated identifiers for the various document parts.


In the draft you have a note:

> Should this also have attributes for horizontal alignment, vertical alignment, spanning cells in the row, and spanning cells in a column? These all exist in HTML.

Actually, in HTML5 they are all (or most of them are) obsolete; being 
replaced by CSS. However, we can't use that.

Other things we'll need is some minimal control over borders (at least 
to the level we had before).

Best regards, Julian
