Here's a "concrete proposal". It is terse and clear. It describes what is
required to use it and its purpose. It has the further advantage that it is
already in place and does not need any rewriting or even further discussion.
It is purposely designed to provide a means through which a table is
described (via text) for those users for whom the possibility of depiction
(via graphics) is meaningless.

summary = text [CS]
This attribute provides a summary of the table's purpose and structure for
user agents rendering to non-visual media such as speech and Braille.
