All valid HTML4 is valid HTML5 from what I can see. Not all valid
HTML5 is valid HTML4. HTML5 allows a TFOOT to be placed after all
TBODY children of the table while in HTML4 the TFOOT has to be before
all TBODY children.

As for always having a TBODY in the DOM tree, you're looking in the
wrong place. Look at

A start tag whose tag name is one of: "td", "th", "tr"

    Act as if a start tag token with the tag name "tbody" had been
seen, then reprocess the current token.

That makes it interoperable with our current major browsers.
