Tables already have their own means of providing a semantically marked up and
distinctively presented caption, namely the <caption> element. So what's the
use case for putting a <table> in a <figure>? That being said, it seems that
<figure> has to allow almost anything to account for the variety of uses in
academic literature. I'm not sure if banning tables specifically is worthwhile.
I could certainly imagine a figure containing a table and something else, or a
table containing images.
