I'm arguing that we have a corner case, where the design table pretty much also live up to being a data table, and that the user of a screen reader for that reason might get useful hints reported. If role="presentation" is used absolutely nothing is reported except the text.

This doesn't seem to be a corner case. You explained that the reason you used a layout table was because it was difficult to accomplish the visual layout you wanted with CSS. By definition that makes it a layout table, not a data table, no?
