I am not sure how user agents shall handle this case. HTML user agents
may ignore this declaration and authors should not define such rules.
HTML controls nesting of different display-role and display-mode
settings but other document languages might have a different structure.
I think user agents should ignore a 'display: table-cell' unless the
element is a child of some 'display: table-row' element, no?
