This wouldn't work right anyway. You'd end up with two nested CSS tables. So I
don't really see that it matters if we make this display:none or display:block.

The spec change doesn't require the 'display:none' on table>form to be
!important,  unlike the Gecko implementation. Is that a problem?

I don't mind changing any of this, but I'd really like to avoid quirks or XHTML
mode differences if at all possible. Please reopen the bug if there's something
to change.
