Because if you apply that in XHTML, then the following perfectly reasonable
(from a parsing point of view; it's clearly invalid) XHTML document won't work
right:

<body>
  <table>
    <form>
      <tr><td>Some text</td></tr>
    </form>
  </table>
</body>

This is a common pattern in HTML authoring, in fact; the display:none is OK in
HTML because in this case the <form> ends up empty when parsed as HTML.
