The rendering in Chrome and Opera is correct but neither in nightly 60 nor in release 58.
:mats, what do you think ?

https://www.w3.org/TR/CSS22/tables.html#model says:
"Percentages on 'width' and 'height' on the table are relative to the table wrapper box's containing block, not the table wrapper box itself."

Perhaps "on the table" in that sentence should really be "on the table or caption"?
The preceding text says that both the caption and the table box should be handled as
block-level boxes inside the table wrapper box, so I would assume that percentages
should be handled the same.  (I can't find any spec text that actually defines
percentages on captions explicitly.)

There seems to be some confusion about caption layout in the CSSWG though,
so who knows?
