Two reasons why I didn't mention this. First of all, given the entire
reasoning behind the existence of the <TH> tag (so help screen readers
(and similar technologies) make sense when interpreting a complex table),
I didn't feel it was necessary to make such a common-sense observation.
Second of all - I specifically said <TH> is required to make pages
PRIORITY ONE compliant. Checkpoint 5.4 deals with priority two.
