TFOOT should be allowed before TBODY because it helps progessive rendering  
on paged media. I'm not sure if it should be allowed after TBODY as well  
-- the renderer cannot finish layout of the first page until it knows  
whether or not there is a TFOOT at the end.

TH in the middle of a table is OK. There can be various subtitles inside  
the table.
