I was referring to HTML5, not XHTML5.  Like how in that section linked 
above it places an additional restriction on the p element:

| A p element must not contain blockquote, dl, menu, ol, pre, table, or
| ul elements, even though these elements are technically allowed inside
| p elements according to the content models described in this
| specification.

The same should be said about the use of this:

<table>
   <tr>

which is ok in XHTML, but in HTML it actually implies this:

<table>
   <tbody>
     <tr>
