Toggleable flow-around wouldn't solve my requirement that the table be
positioned relative to a word or phrase within a paragraph. It seems
the only two possibilities for that are to allow tables within
paragraphs or allow tables inside another element that can be within

Wouldn't reflow on positioned elements be much the same as using
negative margins on floats?
