...Is there any reason to add the scope attribute to Kim's table? Couldn't
that table be simplified and be just as accessible?  

Simplified version:

<table border="0" width="91%" cellspacing="1" class="datatable"
summary="table of agencies with status">
    <tr>
       <th Docket ID</th>
       <th Title</th>
       <th Release Date</th>
       <th Type</th>
       <th Phase</th>
       <th Comment Period Ends</th>
       <th Submit Comment</th>
    </tr>
    <tr>
        <td align="center" OAR-2002-0008</td>
        <td align="center">This is the title of this OPM Docket </td>
        <td align="center">&nbsp</td>
        <td align="center">General Docket </td>
        <td align="center">Notice </td>
        <td align="center">08/27/2008 </td>
	<td align="center"><img src="/edkpub/jsp/images/dk_comment.gif"
alt="Submit Item to Docket with ID Number : OAR-2002-0008" 
border="0"></a> </td>
    </tr>
</table>
