This was intentional, based on research into what tables on the Web actually
looked like and what the expected UI of headers currently is and ideally should
be.

Basically, it turns out that while one would intuitively think that
hierarchical headers are a good design, they end up being more of a pain than a
gain. By forcing a two-level structure, we make authors who are using
headers="" think more carefully about what they want each cell to do and be in
the table.
