The WCAG2 Techniques desribe them as:

"tables used to organize data, and tables used to create a visual layout of
the page"
This seems clear enough to me. Have you seen any that are ambiguous - could
fit into both categories or neither category?

table? We have lots of discussion about that here and it seems important for
the answering of the question about summary and other questions about
accessibility of 'tables'.
