Citing the spec:

"12.1.1 Warnings for obsolete but conforming features

To ease the transition from HTML4 Transitional documents to the language
defined in this specification, and to discourage certain features that are only
allowed in very few circumstances, conformance checkers are required to warn
the user when the following features are used in a document. These are
generally old obsolete features that have no effect, and are allowed only to
distinguish between likely mistakes (regular conformance errors) and mere
vestigial markup or unusual and discouraged practices (these warnings).

The following features must be categorized as described above:

    *  The presence of a summary attribute on a table element."

I do not see how this can be read other as "table/@summary is obsolete".
