A couple of other things that came to mind:

* Since <TR> has the ID attribute, it would be good for it to have the INDEX
  attribute too, so that you could index items in a table on a per-row basis.

* Given that text is supposed to flow around images and figures, which
  elements should NOT flow around graphics, but instead be moved down past the
  graphic? Should any PARA or TEXT flow, but not other things? Should it be
  just <P> and its contents? Some things, like tables, would not flow very
  well. Other things, like lists, you could flow, but it would look lousy and
  possibly be confusing to the reader.

* Should the caption be used on a figure if the browser does not display the
  graphic but rather the substitute text?
