"The effect of 'position:relative' on table-row-group, table-header-group, table-footer-group, table-row, table-column-group, table-column, table-cell, and table-caption elements is undefined."

... which basically means "don't do it because browsers don't support it."

There is no technical limitation to supporting relative positioning on these objects, but historically browsers have not, since it would create bugs and compatibility issues to support it (since relative positioning changes both stacking and if used with left/top the actual placement).
