This was discussed two summits ago, I believe the preferred way to modify
the tables was to extend the panel classes, do your customization there,
and use the plugin mechanism to turn off the original panel and add the
newly extended panel.

It is not straight-forward, but it will be have less risk breaking than
monkey-patching the table class through the customization module.
