It's not minimal – much too many packages!

What I meant is this construct in the definition of the table:

@{\rule[-7.5mm]{1mm}{15mm}}

The 1mm width of the vertical rule is just meant to make this "strut"
annoying construct:

@{\textcolor{yellow}{\rule[-6.25ex]{1ex}{12.5ex}}}

(which, when used as the very first column, would show that the
\hline's protrude into the struts). With tabularx this also sets the
height of the table's header – certainly not wanted! The longtable
package can correct this by defining the header (or footer)
separately. I'm going to work a bit on such a table...
