Would be nice, but for now, just make the code do what you want it to do.
I kind of doubt anyone has used TLF tables so I'm not sure anyone will
notice if you change existing behavior.

I could definitely be wrong, but I thought that either you draw both or
the CSS folks might have some rules on this specified somewhere, like
their rules around margin handling.  I think in HTML, there may be a
default margin between cells that would allow both borders to show with
some space between them.  Flex doesn't support margins and means that
these things can draw on top of each other, but maybe that's still the
right thing to do.
