The nroff manual dates to 1976; tbl 11 months later.  These both came 
along when ed was the editing tool on Unix.  And personally I was using 
both soon after.  It was and still is a safe assumption that all nroff 
systems always support tbl.  Things like grap came along later, but tbl 
(and eqn) were available near the beginning
