Divider Lines with TableHeadings?

I don't like the divider line that is inserted under the column labels 
if you Print or display a table using the TableHeadings option.  It 
crowds down too tightly on the first row of tabular data, at least for 
my visual taste.

I also don't find any documentation of where this line comes from, at 
least in a quick search of the Help system.

But a little experimentation shows that if you use

   TableForm[ Prepend[ myTable, { } ], 
      TableHeadings -> {None, {myColumnLabels}} ]

the horizontal divider line disappears -- and you get a single blank 
line between the column headings and the tabular data, which generally 
looks pretty good.
