Table row heights

The following problem has been brought to my attention.  If you
enlarge the size of the font used in a table cell, the table
cell height does not expand to accommodate the increased height
of the text.  Instead the text gets chopped of.

A few questions:

1. Is this a bug in RTF or the RTF backend, or is this a feature?
   Is it unreasonable to expect the cell height to expand to 
   accomodate the size of the objects in it?  (Should it expand,
   and does the fact that it doesn't indicate that I've got a combination
   of characteristic values that's preventing it---such as a fixed row

2. Do the cell-before-row-margin and cell-after-row-margin 
   characteristics of the table-cell flow object offer the only
   way to adjust the size? 

3. If so, what do you suggest that I do in the DocBook stylesheets?
   Look for a PI in the cell or row?
