I think work on both of them is a great idea, And I'm glad to do such job.
As you said, it is not easy to set up goals.
I have nearly 12 weeks, so my previous plan is to split them into several
IHTMLTableCell                              3 weeks
IHTMLTableCol & IHTMLTableRow    3 weeks
IHTMLTableSection                         2 weeks
IHTMLTable                                    4 weeks
(test-cases included)

I don't know if this meets the need of GSoC. Also, is it necessary to add
"fix real work webpage/app problem" in this schedule?

Thank you very much.

Have a nice day!
