table colgroup

I have a simple catalogue table, and wanted to suggest a width for
each column. To do this, I added a colgroup with col elements.

<COL CLASS="cattitle">
<COL CLASS="material">
<COL CLASS="purchase">

But I'm wondering: couldn't I just put those classes in the th
elements of the thead? Is there any advantage to what I've done? The
html spec seems to say that colgroup is for *grouping* columns (duh!).
But my columns are not grouped.
