Re: CSS rather than layout tables...

On the other hand, one could widen the scope of the note to "Once  
authoring tools support style sheet positioning..." Doing do away with  
layout tables assumes that the target page designer can produce them and  
therefore that authoring tools support them reliably (and work around  
browser quirks). I don't think that time has come.

Does WCAG 2.0 consider a base authoring tool?
