Comment:
Trying to build forms it's disappointing that you can't wrap a form element
around most table elements like rows, headers or footers, for example. That
prevents you from easily creating submit inputs (like save and delete) for
each individual data record in a table. At least if you want your HTML to be
valid.      I see it being done on quite a few websites out there and it works.
Which means that browsers really don't seem to mind. So why not specify it
that way? Wasn't that one of the goals of HTML 5? To specify what's
established practice?
