I don't agree. Yes it is presentational, but data tables can look  
pretty crappy if you remove their alignement information. Delegating  
alignment to CSS will just make tables harder to read without the  
corresponding stylesheet to align the data as intended. That's not  
just style, it's also a usability issue. So I think align="" should  
be preserved for table cells, rows and columns.
