What is the problem with table ? As far as I can tell it is not going to be deprecated or replaced any time soon (or actually never) :-p
Table tags for tabular data are fine, as long as you label the columns correctly. Displaying a page as a 100% x 100% table and using that as all your page layout scheme... well, I used to get an earful from my mother about what this did to screen reading software and its bound to look like Hell on a smart phone.
Sure I was thinking to you wanted to replace it!!
