And those valid reasons were? That authors may not be aware how to do it
any other way? That doing a layout with tables is quicker for them?
If that is subjectively felt as being a valid reason, then fair enough,
stick role="presentation" in there as well and be done with it.
On the same token, constructs like
<p><font size="+2">I'm an H1 yo!</font></p>
are then also valid, of course, as long as you stick a role="heading" in
I see that in future we'll refrain from making best-practice suggestions
that have been around for over a decade...
