[html5] Table Nesting

I've been following WHATWG for the last few years, but normally I can
figure out the problems! I've got a question with regards to nesting inside
a table.
The scenario is pulling data from a fairly complex XML document, where the
data is nested. But let's pretend it's a bit simpler for this ;)


-- Node
-- Node
-- Node
-- Node

Which in the real world is;

Security Team A (a:allowed cups of tea = 18, b:cups of tea drunk = 14)
-- Joe (8,2)
-- Bob (8,8)
-- John (2,4)

The data is consistent between each node, as they use the same schema, and
can be nested to any depth.

Currently I can't see how to represent this relationship using the table

It's not possible to nest a tbody, inside a tbody, or say to use
section/article tags to group the content as you might with say comments?

Hope that makes some kind of sense! Laurie
