No, not really. If no descendant element (of the display:table) with display: table cell is found, then the table/table-row is expected to generate one (and anonymous table object).

see 17.2.1 Anonymous table objects http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/tables.html#anonymous-boxes

So I believe is 9.4.1 is correct.
