[Bug 12476] Trying to build forms it's disappointing that you can't wrap a form element around most table elements like rows, headers or footers, for example. That prevents you from easily creating submit inputs (like save and delete) for each individual data record

Not really.  Browsers make it seem like it works.... as long as you don't do
any of a long list of things.  If you do any of them, it breaks.

Note that HTML5 adds a "form" attribute on inputs precisely to address this use
case.
