Find a friendly access technology user, perhaps a blind person?
Ask them how table navigation works.

If you sit alongside them, they can guide you through table navigation.
Better still, put on a blindfold and try it for yourself.
cell spanning has been around for a while.
sub-tables seems to be an ODF invention?

Either believe the accessibility sub-committee or find out from an end user.
I'm sure Peter or Rich can introduce you to an AT user if you ask nicely.
