that's what i'm hoping to find out through the ESW Wiki page i created on 
the issued:

http://esw.w3.org/topic/HTML/SummaryForTABLE

this gives opponents of summary and advocates of its deprecation a chance 
to make their arguments, and propose an alternative means of providing the 
essential functionality of the summary attribute to the comprehension of 
the nature, contents, and structure of the TABLE to which it belongs...
