So the arrangment is legal.

Sorry ... I didn't say that.  I see from the spec that table-body 
cannot be empty:

You must choose between the row-based row-grouping strategy or the 
cell-based row-grouping strategy for each <table-body> used in your <table>.

That is all I need to know.  I am
outputing a fo file with every transformation.

Then you'll be able to open the FO file and see that the body is, 
indeed, empty as reported by the error message.  It cannot be empty 
to be legal and the processor is correct to complain.

I hope this helps.
