I don't disagree with this either - at some point it may be left to a
judgment call as to which is most appropriate.  

I think however that as a general response, the guidance would be that under
most circumstances, the <tfoot> *should* mirror the <thead>, but that it is
not obligatory (although I did not write the spec., and I may be off here).
