Yes, I agree. I even thought about it, but got scared very quickly due to

I hope I'll be able to do that some day.

Well... I have informal tables with titles :) . For instance, users
writing <book>s are required to put their resumes in standard form at
the end of the book. I put the resume in an <article>. It contains three
tables: personal data, education and experience (the latter two with
titles). I don't want these to be listed in the LOT.

In addition, I have other problems I couldn't solve yet:

1. I need to put a page with some text into a <book> right after the
   titlepage. It doesn't have a title. It should come before the TOC. It
   shouldn't show up in the TOC (currently I use an <article> inside the
   <book>, and it doesn't satisfy either condition).

2. (Haven't looked at this one actually). The <book> should have two
   abstracts in different languages. I format them as <preface>s. These
   prefaces should come before the TOC, right after
   that-page-with-some-text mentioned above.


Thanks in advance,
