The only kind of run-in interaction I could see with a table that would 
make sense would be to convert the run-in into a caption. But there's 
already an element for that (|caption|) and it might result in multiple 
captions. Not to mention it might look messed up now that caption 
margins no longer collapse.

Or maybe that wouldn't be appropriate at all. I'm still not quite sure 
where captions (or even |th| used for table headers) fit in with the 
|h1| ... |h6| scheme.
