I am not sure regarding the fate of the summary attribute. Nevertheless, came
across a scenario (apologies if it is a duplicate):

***A screen reader like JAWS will concatenate column headers and linearize the
data cells. JAWS then presents this information in the table utility list***

When a summary attribute is applied, the problem seems to disappear.
