Tina, that's my proposal - to examine each table and determine if it needs 
TH elements.  If the TH is needed it is added, if it is not (no "potential 
misuse"), then the null summary is added as a flag to tell that the 
examination has been preformed.  Again, my proposal is to flag those not 
needing TH elements with null summary attribute.  The only way I know to 
move on is to leave some change in the markup to indicate that TH is not 
needed versus it hasn't been examined yet.
