Yeah, that part of the draft hasn't been updated since 2007 or so...  It 
_might_ stay this way (in which case css3-box will need to define the 
processing model and UAs will implement what it defines).  Or it might 
get updated to say what CSS2.1 (which used to have much the same text) 
now says:

   Applies to:  block containers

which does not include internal table elements.

Either way, nothing defines how 'overflow' on a table-row-group should 
work, if it were applied, at the moment.  :(
