In simple cases (where only one heading applies to each data cell), I
would say not.

Simple tables with headings across the top are fine with just using
<th>s, but if you have more than one heading per data cell then yes, you
need to use a whole heap of extra markup.

I'm sure there's a tutorial on webaim about that?
http://www.webaim.org/techniques/tables/data.php

It did make me think though, I'm only really considering of screen
reader users (non-visual access) as the people that benefit from the
underlying markup, does anyone else?

Kind regards,
