Aren't tables a trick as well? Many people are so used to using tables
that they no longer see them as tricks, but they really are. What's so
much worse about using an extra span over an extra table? Seems like
half a dozen of one, six of the other to me.

They've already done that. The display: table-cell and related
properties do this. It's just that IE doesn't support them.
