Note that while Firefox does this it also provides an IA2 object attribute
layoutGuess: true or absent if false, in the case of your example table
layoutGuess: true.

This information is provided to allow AT to hide the layout table semantics
if they desire.

In the case of a chess board (example: http://codepen.io/stevef/pen/KpzRKO)
marked up using a table the layoutguess is false (absent)
