Because the choicetable fits neither the CALS nor HTML table models, it is implemented as a custom table. This means that the element mappings simply grab their content and store them with internal table wrappers. At the end of the choicetable all the stored table elements are emitted as a single unit.
And because the table is only emitted at the very end, but any vertical space requested by the original elements is processed immediately, the space always appears above the table. For this reason we do not usually have our choicetable elements specify any formatting directly.
