Description

3 years ago
What problems would this solve?
===============================
When a compatibility table has a row with an extra cell, the parser raises a ValueError trying to find the matching column header.  Instead, this should be marked as an error that needs to be fixed by a human.

Who would use this?
===================
MDN staff cleaning data for the import process

What would users see?
=====================
Users would see the extra cell with surrounding context

What would users do? What would happen as a result?
===================================================
Users would remove the correct extra cell.

Is there anything else we should know?
======================================
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/WeakSet is an example of a page w/ error, https://browsercompat.herokuapp.com/importer/1019 with the parse failure.
