this "<tr role="cell">" is not currently considered a conformance error as you
removed any role constraints on table related elements. So suggest replacing it
with  an example that is actually a conformance error.

from the spec:

"Errors that involve a conflict in expressed semantics
Similarly, to draw the author's attention to mistakes in the use of elements,
clear contradictions in the semantics expressed are also considered conformance
errors.

In the fragments below, for example, the semantics are nonsensical: a row
cannot simultaneously be a cell, nor can a radio button be a progress bar.

<tr role="cell">  <input type=radio role=progressbar>"
