I'd really like to hear your explanation on this.

In bug 12413, then Aryeh explicitly (and James implicitly, by not 
protesting after I reopened the bug) accepted that they misinterpreted 
what HTML5's Rendering section says.

Until you provide details to the opposite, it seems most logical to 
assume that you are under the same misunderstanding that Aryeh and 
James once where. 

PS: In check-in http://html5.org/r/6008, then our editor added a table 
acknowledges that that border="0" should cause no borders. So I really 
don't understand why the Rendering suggests CSS which disagrees - it is 
most certainly only a typo or sloppyness from the editor.
