That Wiki is quite old now and a lot has changed since it was written.

table-layout="auto" is a often requested feature and as Jeremias said 
I'm sure a lot of folks would be grateful for it. My only concern is the 
amount of work involved, it might be too big a chunk of work for 
Google's summer of code project.

Another broken table feature that often causes confusion is the 
border-collapse algorithm. I know Jeremias had some ideas about how to 
implement most of it and just leave out the hardest bits.
