I don't believe a <TH> without a scope attribute is adequate.

Consider a table <TH> elements across the entire first row and down the 
entire first column. Now consider the <TH> in the first column of the 
first row. Should it refer to the column or the row? The scope needs to 
be explicitly stated.
