Without more information I can't say. A likely scenario would be a
web-developer looking at pages on an intranet which is why he shows you
a reduced example. It doesn't necessarily reflect the open web at all,
especially as you aren't pointing to any real examples.

Actually, you said "that all sorts of pages out there sort
multi-thousand-row tables by reordering the row nodes in the DOM. "
Are you now saying that based on two examples, one of them 500 rows and
one anecdotal, we can probably assume it is that way?
