It's quite common in technical documentation.  We have lots of tables
with multiple paragraphs in cells.  It's not that uncommon, in fact,
to have lists inside table cells.  I can even recall one group of
technical writers who maintained that they couldn't document complex
procedures without being able to put nested lists inside table cells.

The position that convoluted typographical devices like this wouldn't
be necessary if people really knew how to write tends not to go over
very well in such discussions...
