OK, That sounds reasonable.  I'll try that.  On the other hand this
means many \bTD<something>\eTD ... but one can write a macro for that,
I think.

Yep, but only if I don't split the table:

and \startalignment[middle]...\stopalignment doesn't seem to do
anything in that case.

That's not what I meant:

doesn't split the table.  The output looks exactly like the
\midaligned{} one.
