Example: The <object> element is supposed to be able to contain 
fallback for AT etc. And so, an image of a diagram could use a table as 
fallback. Only, it is not legal to considered conforming to have a 
<table> inside an <object> inside a <p>.

It is a bit unpractical to change the parent element just because the 
child element happens to to be an <object> with fallback, no?
