This is a great catch!

I've changed the paragraphs in Section 6.1 to the following:

]]
Whenever it uses a tr element, polyglot markup always wraps the tr element
inside a tbody, thead, or tfoot element. In HTML, if a group of one or more
adjacent tr elements are not explictly wrapped inside a tbody, thead, or tfoot
element, the HTML parser creates and wraps a new tbody element around the tr
elements. XML parsers do not crete the tbody element, thus offering the
potential for creating different DOMs. 
[[

and 

]]
Whenever it uses col elements within a table element, polyglot markup
explicitly uses a colgroup element surrounding groups of the col elements. In
HTML, if a group of one or more adjacent col elements are not explicitly
wrapped inside a colgroup element, the HTML parser creates and wraps a new
colgroup element around the col elements. XML parsers do not create the
colgroup element, thus offering the potential for creating different DOMs.

Thanks,

Eliot
