I understand your review but my concern is much more about the caption element than the summary attribut. If I follow the rule in my example it result an useless redundancy of element. Can we use # describedby or# labelledby of the Aria spec instead to have just one element used as title for the table event if it's not a caption. 

In every case I think you must add this statement to be more revelant : it may be a judgement call about what information should appear as table caption and if the caption would need to be directly associated with the table

Yes, user can navigate from table to table but he can do the same with h1, h2, etc and the same with form so if perfectly follow you it will result to something like :

<legend>shopping cart</legend>
<h3>shopping cart</h3>
<table><caption>shopping cart</caption>
<input type="submit">
