        Either that or we could use a text property that’d point back to
        the “relevant” DOM element (as in: subtree.)

        Given that SHR only does columns inside <table />, – using the
        closest <td /> or <th /> ancestor for the purpose would solve
        the issue.

        With a property, we could just provide a command to display the
        relevant element in a separate buffer.

        However, given that using tables for layout tends to create
        accessibility issues out of nothing (did I hear someone saying
        Emacspeak in this discussion?), why exactly can’t we provide the
        user a way to get rid of all the “layout” tables at once?
