I believe browsers may render things incorrectly if this is not the case. As
TBODY and THEAD never have really been implemented in a way that would make
them useful...

I would want to insert duplicates of the template directly in front of it
without mentioning the parent node as it is no longer required. However, you
told me there were some cases when you really need the parent element. 
(With an
exception for root elements somewhere.)

This clarified that it for me: "And one can always work around the problem by
putting repeat="0" on the elements one wants to have come first." Thanks for

Now I'm no longer sure why you can't insert directly before the 
template though.
