Should one expect HTML table row/column integrity to become an HTML5  
conformance requirement?

That is, will these tables be non-conforming:

<table>
<tr><td rowspan="2"></td></tr>
</table>

<table>
<tr><td></td></tr>
<tr><td></td><td></td></tr>
</table>

?

(This is something static document authors probably would prefer to  
have flagged, and for dynamic document authors it isn't a  
particularly good idea to leave the DOM in an incoherent state for  
prolonged times.)
