in layoutmgr.table.ColumnSetup an error message is thrown if there are

that fo:table-columns should be consecutive.
Indeed not. You could number your columns 100, 200, 300...
IIRC, they don't even have to be defined in ascending order, and
neither do the table-cells.
So, if you'd like, you could define a three column table:
<fo:table-column column-number="10" .../>
<fo:table-column column-number="5" .../>
<fo:table-column column-number="1" .../>
And as table-columns are
only placeholders for properties that may be used by children
table-cells, I don’t see what is wrong with gaps.
Anyone against me changing this behaviour?
