Yep. The table elements are associated with a bunch of really terrible parsing rules in HTML. That being said, even with that fixed, Firefox is the only browser that enables position:relative on table rows. 

I don't have a strong opinion on whether to allow this or not in the spec, but it does seem somewhat useful (except that, well, you cannot have an element in a table row that is not a table-cell, so any element you insert in a table-row will create second column in your table whether it is position:absolute or not, which is not what you want in this case)
