Comment (by joedolson):

 Blah. That's a good point, and nasty. The only solution I can think of to
 that is to move the sorting link out of the table heading, but that's an
 ugly thing o do, as well, and will make it harder to find.

 If we set up the text as an aria-describedby or aria-labelledby and
 associated it with the link, do you think that should be read as part of
 the th scope?

 (Not *is* it read, necessarily - I'm thinking more about whether or not it
 *should* be read, in principle.)
