If we did that, the table would be trivial enough not to need a summary at 
all.

If anyone has any suggestion of a table that is small enough to be usable 
as an example that is copied multiple times, but complicated enough that 
it actually needs explanatory text, please let me know, I'd love to change 
the example to something better.

Unfortunately that is far too long to actually fit in the spec as an 
example that is repeated many times. I'd really like something 20 lines 
long, 25 at the most (written one element to a line, as now).
