Please remove the prefixed comments (and post a comment in bug 125493 too, if possible)

I know it's a proposal for discussion, but just in case, we normally put first the line describing the patch and last the one mentioning the tests (new or not) covering the changes. Would be nice to consider that for future patches

I think a 'while (node)' statement would be better in this case

I wonder if this change will break other a11y tests or functionality if that some AccessibilityObjects that used to report a CellRole role will now report a ColumnHeaderRole or RowHeaderRole. I have the feeling that some more changes would be needed such as, for instance, to update the roleIsTextType() static function in the ATK wrapper.

Also, it would be great if you could share here a plain text representation of the ATK hierarchy that would be exposed for some common cases of HTML tables with column/row headers, so we are sure that whatever we will be exposing is what ATs (e.g. Orca) do expect.
