That is definitely a bug. The content model for "full" DocBook
does not include Caption as a required child for HTML-style
Informaltable. And of course in the case of the HTML style, the
presence of the Caption is what distinguishes a formal table from
an informal one.

I believe Simplified is still an official work product of the
DocBook TC. So you should probably file a DocBook RFE requesting
that the problem be fixed.
