W3C: "there is no attribute 'HEIGHT'"

Photo of W3C: "there is no attribute 'HEIGHT'"

Exsqueeze me?  Baking Powder?  Table has no "HEIGHT" attribute?  Since when?  1,000,000's of website can't be wrong?  Or can they?

<table height=100%>
  <tr>
    <td>stuff</td>
  </tr>
</table>

I do this all the time, and so do countless of other people.  But apparently, table doesn't support the "height" attribute, officially that is.  It looks like all browsers support it just fine, but for W3C religeous reasons, one must use a style (inline or otherwise) to do it like this:

<table style="height: 100%;">
  <tr>
    <td>stuff</td>
  </tr>
</table>

ps. TD doesn't "support" background either, officially.
One must do:

<td style="background: url('some/image');">
