You are right, in the case that was in my mind it was actually not the
table that required the transitional doctype. The layout required
horizontal centering of the main contents area, and also of some blocks
inside other elements. I was only able to achieve this using a layout
table, and also only with a transitional doctype, as strict doctype does
not seem to link table height of 100% to the viewport height. So I
should rather have written "You are asked to realize a layout that can't
be realized with a strict doctype".

Anyway maybe my posting was not extremely relevant - I just read the
original question after having spent many hours trying to do this kind
of thing the clean way, and ended up doing it as I could have done it
years ago...

When ones HTML experiences were learned in the mid 90s. I can deal
with making a page that will validate using HTML 4.0 transitional, but
that's where I "dropped out" of HTML school. I work with what I have,
and don't do enough web design to warrant learning more, at this point
in time. But, CSS is next on my list of things to learn. Maybe next
year. :)
