Actually it will be both more strict and more compliant, and will 
provide room for future speed improvements. If fo:table-column objects 
are specified they are expected to set the number of columns in the 
table. That allows to start the rendering of the table immediately. If 
you don’t specify table-columns, then the number of columns will be 
taken from the row that has the most cells. That requires to parse the 
whole table before being able to render it.

No, and now that you mention it, I realize that this is missing. I’ll 
try to update the documentation in the next day. Keep you posted.
