Well one cannot have structural tags like TH in a layout table. (One may use id on TD too).
Screen readers (WinEyes, JAWS, NVDA) do not support it for sure. So it is not assistive technology supported. But I deliverately did not bring up this point earlier because it is really not relevant.
The HTML specs talk of associating header cells in a table with data cells in the table ... not in a separate table. So it does not have to explicitly stated.
