For row headers you can have a look at my xtable extension

For a sample document, see:

On the rendering side, I implemented a simple (dsssl) transformation
from xtable to CALS, so you can use whatever you like (eg. xsl) to
render it afterwards.

It only has a very limited subset of CALS, however, but patches are
gladly accepted :)
