So, would a rule 4½ added to the anonymous box generation rules
that states

   4½. If a child T of a 'table', 'inline-table', 'table-row-group',
       'table-header-group', 'table-footer-group', or 'table-row' box
       is an anonymous inline box that contains only white space, then
       it is treated as if it has "display: none".

solve the problem?
