Much like with the headers="" attribute, this was intentional, based on
research into what tables on the Web actually looked like and what the expected
UI of scope 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 scope=""
think more carefully about what they want each cell to do and be in the table.
