+1 on the direction. But we also need to add TFOOT.

All themed tables should have the ability to add THEAD [1],TFOOT [2],
and TBODY [3] to support true semantic table building.

For extra accessibility and semanticity we should throw in a thead tag
if there is a header row and always put in a tbody tag.
