I can't be exact, but I've seen a lot of hints in the source code (not PHP source, HTML source) of PHPBB that demonstrate they at least know HTML. PHPBB is also the forum software used at AccessifyForum.com which is the forum for the Accessify site.
We can only hope for a completley CSS based forum, no tables and 100% accessable.
Disclaimer. (1) Whilst I will help you sometimes, if I feel like it, and my advice in relation to your actual question will be of good quality: my posts are to be taken with a pinch of salt. I will be sarcastic, deploy irony and include obscure cultural references for my own amusement without warning.
(2) You will gain nothing from complaining, and if you try to argue with me then you will not win. No matter how noble your battle seems, I am still better than you, don't be an hero.
Forums would be the best example of a place where CSS and tables will work beautfully together. Imagine how much repetitive presentational markup there is in forums- that could all be replaced with a few classes and IDs. All the table markup would be the caption (that thread's name) the colgroup (info and post), then the tbody, which would be like
<img src="/avatar.php?user=poster" alt="" height="50" width="50" />

Instead of... well, view source on these forums.
