[Newbies] Why do Seaside's table tags e.g. td etc.,
live 'outside' of table?

I was looking at some Seaside code today and noticed that it said
html tableCaption: 'blah'.
html table tableCaption: 'blah'
In other words, as far as Seaside was concerned the tableCaption tag was
nothing to do with the table tag. This struck me as slightly odd. Somehow I
would have expected the 'child' tags of table to be created through messages
to the parent table. However, that clearly isn't the case, and now that I
have looked more closely at the Seaside tag structure, that seems to be the
case for most of the tags.
I am keen to understand what makes good Smalltalk design, so could someone
explain why making the tags independent is a better way of doing it?
