Tables in RTF backend & element numbering

I have two questions.

The first concerns tables.

I want to format part of a table in the following way:

|          |
|  label   +-----------
|          |
|          |

So I specify

  n-rows-spanned: 2
  cell-row-alignment: 'center
  cell-before-row-border: #t
  cell-before-column-border: #t

for the cell, but the table I get using the RTF backend looks like

|   label  |
|          |
|          |

So the rows get spanned vis-a-vis the label, but the label doesn't get
aligned properly in the row-progression direction, and the border
seems to ignore the spanning specification.  Is this a limitation of RTF,
a bug in the RTF backend, or am I misinterpreting the intended semantics
of the characteristics?

My second question concerns numbering of elements with different GIs.
I have something like this in my document:


and I want to format this as

  1. B
  2. C
  3. D

so at first I used (child-number) to generate the numbers but soon realized
that this doesn't work because (child-number) applies to elements with the
same GI, and here I have three different GIs under A.  Is there a simple
way I can get this effect?
