I'm afraid even the W3C's Web Accessability Initiative reccommends this,
although in the long term they want it deprecated in favour of style sheets.
Basically, style sheet implementation in this area is so patchy and
broken that they are currently a liability.  (I don't think you can get
an AAA rating with tables for layouts, but they would be ignoring reality
if they banned layout entirely.)

Even with working style sheets, I don't expect the vast majority, who
don't care about browsers which are not "significant" (in the terms of 
a recent www-html list, off topic, question) to lay their pages out in
a sensible reading order, and I fear that they may move to SVG, because
the minimum implementation is more predictable than current style sheets.

Even with tables for layout, if you know what you are doing, you can
impose a sensible reading order
