Except it would barely show up at all, because most of the people who
would care enough to use title="layout" (or whatever) are already
using CSS for layout.

I don't think any such code meaning "this table is for layout"
should be introduced, as it only legitimises the use of tables
for layout, which is a semantic nightmare.
