Side note:
I considered the inference of a tbody harmless enough that the  
validation mode I describe as the text/html-compatible subset of  
XHTML5 allows tr as child of table when applied to XML.

Is this a bad idea? I thought it wasn't particularly useful to flag  
trees with tr as child of table as something that would break if  
serialized as HTML5 and sent as text/html.

(This does not affect the UI that claims to be a technology preview  
of an (X)HTML5 conformance checking service. This only affects  
options in the generic UI.)
