You can find a number of e-mails regarding headers="" under the 
semantics-tables folder. I don't think anyone has actually suggested that 
we use axis="", though.

Mostly, though, the headers="" issue is being covered in the HTMLWG's 
wiki, which is a separate (and in-development) list of issues from the 
issues list here (which is basically just a view of my IMAP folders).
