There is nothing about the proscription of tables being contained in paragraphs that relates in any way to their float attribute. And anyway, can't one float any block element by overriding that attribute in its style? I realize that probably no browser implements this yet, but that will be the standard way to do it when they can stop fighting over who can break the standard faster long enough to implement some of it.
