Subject Re: table cell duplication

Smells table-marker-ish to me. A block-container in the table-header
(retrieved through retrieve-table-marker) could display the second "CCC"
in the right position.

The only problem: someone has to implement table markers first. But I
think this would be better than to introduce yet another extension.

Now, if Block E breaks to a new page, it usually looks like this:

As far as I was able to see, this is not supported by the specification, so I assume, I have
to write my own extension. I'd be grateful for any ideas how to solve that in a supported
way or any comments on where and how to implement the extension.
