Although some might say it's best to table the discussion,
The old classic, Ricks: Blunders in International Business[^] (recommended!) tells a story about some serious cooperation problems in a joint British/US project. Before one meeting agreed in advance that these problems "be tabled". The Brits thought that they had agreed to bring the problems up on the table, "face up", for discussion and resolution. The US guys were similarly convinced that they had agreed to lay the problems "face down", dead, on the table, not making the problems a topic for this meeting.

The conflicting understanding of "to table something" did not reduce the cooperation problems.
