Wasn't there some talk of having the semantics of table cells exist  
in the table headers and propagate to the cells via scope="col"?  I  
can't find it in the archive.  Did I totally imagine that?

Right now I have a microformat parser that requires valid XHTML but  
doesn't do inclusion, and a proxy that does inclusion, but may turn  
valid XHTML into invalid XHTML in the process.  I intend to resolve  
this by merging the two, but that's only an option because I'm  
rewriting the parser anyway.  So I'm wondering how such an issue  
would best be resolved if merging weren't an option.  Should parsers  
not require valid XHTML input, or is it just not possible to cleanly  
detach inclusion from the rest of the parsing process?
