I'd be happy if it could be agreed that since a 'float'ed element is
"outside the normal flow of elements" then it follows that the opening
tag of the floated element does not explicitly close a paragraph. The
limitation on nested tables then disappears.

IE and N treat this markup as you suggest and insert a paragraph break
after "at a list:" and before "More text". But with this markup:

  <P>Now is the time to look at a table:
  <TABLE BORDER=1>
  <TR><TD>Item 1
  </TABLE>
  More text

there is no paragraph break either before or after the table, only a
line break.
