--- Comment #7 from James Craig <jcraig@apple.com> ---
All browsers use heuristics to differentiate data tables from layout tables. It
may be that they should use some heuristics here, too. Additionally, this is an
area where implementations can differentiate themselves. 

I don't know that the heuristics need to happen in a spec. If you do make some
suggestions of when UAs should heuristically hide semantics from an
accessibility API, I'd expect them to be RFC-2119 MAY statements, not SHOULD or
MUST.
