Thanks for this Hraban. I had come to the conclusion that there was no 
possibility of a 'bottomframecolor' option, and as TABLE is one of the 
older commands and important for XML, I assume it won't change much 
(though the option of different colours for frame sides would be good, 
and may not affect TABLE as such since it is \framed we are talking 
about really).

Bruce's suggestion of a dummy row is a simple one, and it works. But I 
will also look at your solution too. Am always keen to have more than 
one arrow in the quiver!
