<base> is now allowed in XHTML5 too.
Maybe it would make sense to have one column for HTML5 and one for XHTML5?
<basefont> is deprecated in HTML4.
<![CDATA[ ]]> is allowed in HTML5 but only in SVG and MathML contexts.
<eventsource> was dropped.
(X)HTML5 doesn't have <rbc>, <rtc>, <rb>.
The "?" label seems unused.
I guess <html>, <listing>, <xmp> should be labeled "B". <noscript>, <ins>,
<del>, <meter>, <progress>, <keygen>, <object>, <canvas>, <embed>,
<applet> are "I". <table> is marked "B" but is not display:block. I guess
none of the frameset-related elements should have "B", since framesets
can't be expressed with CSS. The <ruby>-related elements also have special
values for 'display'. I'm not sure about <layer> and <nolayer> -- I think
they're just unknown (and hence inline) in browsers these days.
<figure> is an "N" element. <isindex> is a bit weird since the parser
expands it into <form>...<input>. <bb> can be either normal or replaced, I
think. <command> is "I". I think <details> is always "N". HTML 5 doesn't
say that <meter> or <progress> are replaced elements. <img> and <object>
can be either "R" or "N". <audio> can be either "R" or "I". The "I" for
<source> is left-aligned while the others are centered. <map> is a normal
inline element. I wouldn't say <frameset> is an "N" -- maybe leave the
cell empty. Same for <frame>. I think <xml> is invisible in IE.

Nice. Hixie: some tables in the spec could benefit from the same styling.
