I'm reading section 5.4 ("Allowed Page Breaks") [1] in the CSS3 Paged Media 
module and I'm having a hard time figuring out exactly what it's saying.... Say 
I have the following (X)HTML document (or rather this tree of DOM nodes, with 
the elements being HTMLElements):

<html>
   <body>
     <table>
       <tr>
         <td>Short text</td><td />
       </tr>
       <tr>
         <td>Short text</td><td>Long text</td>
       </tr>
       <tr>
         <td>
           <div>Some text</div>
           <div>More text</div>
         </td>
         <td>Short text</td>
       </tr>
     </table>
   </body>
</html>

There are no style rules applied to this DOM tree other than the obvious rules 
in the UA sheet to set display values.

Given that, where is a UA allowed to put page breaks when printing this 
document, per this spec?
