Well, the first row and the last row don't appear to have any direct
relationship to the other rows. I would probably put them in a
seperate table, or just in prose (they will still be associated with
the rest of the data in so far as they are part of the same document,
or section (XHTML 2.0 <section>, otherwise delimited by headings).

The rest looks simple enough to achieve with a row of <th>s with
colspan (and rowspan on the last), followed by a row of <th>s - all
with scope="col".
