           Summary: Infine loop in 'in select in table' in fragment mode?

It seems to me that a start tag for CAPTION, TBODY, THEAD, TFOOT, TR, TD, TH,
TABLE in 'in select in table' causes an infinite loop in the fragment case when
there's no <select> in table scope, because the "as if" </select> doesn't
change any state before the token is reprocessed.

Maybe it's impossible to reach this state in the fragment mode. If that's the
case, the assertion about fragment mode in the spec should be replaced with a
"this can't happen" assertion.
