But my point still stands: Many tables *can* be made to degrade
gracefully, if the author adds extra markup which really
shouldn't be necessary.  Some tables really can't be made
to degrade gracefully at all.

I understand that minimal HTML is not the *object* of the
ABI, but it may well be the result.
