Content that fails to use any specific technique does not necessarily
fail to conform to WCAG2. Otherwise, you would need to use all
techniques listed to satisfy WCAG2.

So "fail technique G134 so they do not meet SC4.1.1" is not correct.

However, if nested tables in HTML cannot be parsed unambiguously, they
do not meet SC 4.1.1.
