Looking at  Summary of BlockingDeque methods again, we have what might
logically be a thead in the middle of a table, and the law of "only one
thead, and only at the beginning" might be yet another hint that the html
gods want us to split this table.  This could become a nested table with
two rows, one for "first" and one for "last", each of which contains a
subtable with a thead.
