Yes, but css::table::BorderLine is used by css::table::TableBorder.

I noticed a missing color borders of a table in a docx file. Debugging
this lead to an exception in SwXCell::setPropertyValue for property
"LeftBorder", caused by the fact that the value was of type
css::table::BorderLine. I further tracked this to
where css::table::TableBorder's members (of type css::table::BorderLine,
not BorderLine2) were used as an intermediary for the property values
(incidentally, I forgot to push that part of the fix...)
