 Tables are not the best on responsive designs in the first place.

 I'm not sure this is worth putting too much effort into for 5.2, as it's
 not a general page for casual browsing in the first place.

 I'd be happy looking to tackle this for 5.2.1 if anything, where we can
 look at adding some responsive styling for tables, but with just two
 columns, you are very much controlled by the content of the columns them
 selves. We should try to take care so we don't disrupt the data or
 misrepresent it after all. One idea may be to add overflow styles for the
 x-axis to allow scrolling within the table on smaller devices.
