I put constraints on the list instead:

"If the element on which the method was invoked has a computed value for  
display property of table or inline-table include both the table box and  
the caption box, but not the anonymous container box."

The order is already decided by the phrase that says "content order". If  
more table boxes are generated it should work out just as well, but if we  
see problems when that becomes more widespread we'll have to revise the

"Replace each anonymous block box with its child box(es) and repeat this  
until no anonymous block boxes are left in the final list."
