Status of <a>

A few weeks ago I read something somewhere where a member of the group  
suggested allowing <a> to wrap any element without caring if it was a  
block or inline element.
Which would allow for things like:

<a href="edit.php?id=41">
   <tr>
     <td>Article Title</td><td>Posted: 2008-08-06</td><td>Edit</td>
   </tr>
</a>

Instead of

   <tr>
     <td>
    <a href="edit.php?id=41">Article Title</a>
     </td>
     <td>
     <a href="edit.php?id=41">Posted: 2008-08-06</a>
     </td>
     <td>
     <a href="edit.php?id=41">Edit</a>
     </td>
   </tr>


Is this actually being considered?
