I don't know what the expected use cases are, so I have no opinion on 
spec functional grounds.

For tables, people definitely wanted consecutive cells wrapped in a 
single table.  For ruby, I have no idea whether this situation would 
even arise in a non-trying-to-break-the-spec way.

That said, making it work like tables sure simplifies implementation, 
since the existing table stuff can be reused.  ;)
