I'm actually trying to avoid this, because it makes coding on the
receiving end of the form process more complicated. i.e., instead of
running through an array and handling each key/value, I'd have to run
through an array for each individual table. That would work nicely,
though, for the 'checkall' part, wouldn't it?

I am pretty sure I could not make this work, since there will be a
variable number of checkboxes, and I never know what the range of
indexes might be. I was kind of hoping there would be some gee whiz
method for identifying the contents of a table by id or something. Any
such luck?
