I cited some examples and references on May 2, 2007 [1]:

In a data table accessibility test, Roger Hudson and Russ Weakley
describe how "At this stage, it appears that id and headers are the
most effective way to make complex data tables accessible. Although id
and headers are slightly more difficult to code than scope, the
apparent poor screen reader support for scope means that this is
probably not an effective accessibility option."
