I've seen it done like that and also like this:

       <option value="">Please Choose</option>
       <option value="1">Option 1</option>
       .... etc .....

Some people could survey existing websites to see how authors are currently 
doing this and whether there are patterns we could make use of. If this is 
common, perhaps when the first <option> uses <option value=""> or exactly 
<option value>, we can imply it is a label instead of an option?

Giving common markup trends native accessibility could be useful outside the 
niche of table headers. If we spread the workload we could find out sooner.
