Hi Aurélien,

These test cases are a good start, what is also needed are some tables that
test the limits of the scope attribute, ie.
a table where the headers cannot be unambiguously defined using the scope
attribute, but can be using id/headers
attributes. Then these can be tested using screen readers, to see if
the headers can be interrogated successfully
in either table.
