If it doesn't, but dropping the repeated footer allows room for at least part of a tbody row, then drop the repeated footer but keep the repeated header.

Correct that is what browsers seems to do today.

I thought it was what browsers were doing so that is what I initially intended, but matching current implementations when they agree on a result is what we want, not to define a new behavior, so I would like to clarify that to mention any part of a row and not necessarily a row in full.
