I know it is a hang-over from my TeX background, but I really want to
be able to specify alignment in tables on a column by column
basis. Does anyone have any sympathy with me?

I want to say:

   <fo:table-column column-number="1" column-width="10%" column-align="center"/> 
   <fo:table-column column-number="2" column-width="15%" column-align="decimal"/> 
   <fo:table-column column-number="2" column-width="15%" column-align="end"/> 

If I have 25000 rows, I really do not want to put alignment on every
single table cell. Surely TeX cannot be the only formatter which works 
on the basis of a template for each row?

If this attribute were added, would any implementors have problems
with it?
