Layout tables have not been deprecated, as using "deprecate" would still allow
their usage and just recommend against it. [1] (That is, RFC 2119 "SHOULD".)
Rather, they have been strictly forbidden: "Tables must not be used as layout
aids. Historically, some Web authors have misused tables in HTML as a way to
control their page layout. This usage is non-conforming, ... There are a
variety of alternatives to using HTML tables for layout, primarily using CSS
positioning and the CSS table model." [2] Unless you are proposing to make this
requirement *weaker*, this WORKSFORME.
