TwentySeventeen Theme - CSS issue when using rowspan in tables

I've spotted an issue with the TwentySeventeen theme. This definition in styles.css:

td:first-child {
    padding-left: 0;

causes problems when using tables containing rowspans. Specifically, this code:

<table width="100%">
      <th>Head 1</th>
      <th>Head 2</th>
      <td rowspan="3">Cell 1</td>
      <td>Cell 2</td>
      <td>Cell 3</td>
      <td>Cell 4</td>

produces a table where Head 2 and Cell 2 have padding-left: 0.4em, while Cell 3 and Cell 4 have padding-left: 0. This produces a table with misaligned cells in the same column.

We have a 0.4em padding set for all td elements, which makes the content to stay nicely inside the td with an equal small padding all sides.

td {
   padding: 0.4em;

But since the pseudo elements :first-child and :last-child have a left padding set to 0 just below the above rule, I feel we need to apply the same for td and th as well. This will ensure all elements would have no left padding but have a padding of 0.4em on other three sides, i.e. top, right and bottom.

The following works for me.

th {
   padding-left: 0;
