I assume you mean <table><tr><td><svg><desc><td>?

I guess the solution is to make it clear that "reprocess the current token"
means that we should first check the rule in the "in foreign content" section
that resets the insertion mode, before then rerunning the token through the
entire system from the top?

There is also the problem with <table><tr><td><svg><td><desc><td>. Not sure how
to handle that one, unless we start checking for namespaces when looking at tag
names. Any suggestions?

We could probably solve both problems by making <svg> scoping for table scope,
but then we'd have to add a bunch of error-handling logic in the table modes.

Or maybe the real problem is that the secondary mode can be anything but "in
body". Should we give up with the secondary mode idea, and just reset the
insertion mode when exiting foreign lands, and always defer to the in-body mode
from foreign lands when appropriate?
