Except... didn't we decide that there are exceptions? Like, floated
block-level A's work without a specified width. However, that was under
the doctrine of "replaced elements" ... I dunno if tables count.

Weeell, tables have a tendency to be very insistent about their width,
so it might be easier to leave it unsized... maybe it makes more sense
