I agree that you probably don't want to exactly replace the full power of Excel. But this simple feature makes it possible to keep track of simple

The question is exactly where to draw this border.  Decisive
for me is if I can find a clear an logical way to define things.
I guess something more about this will materialize eventually, but it will take a bit.

Yes, I think it would and I have been thinking to make this possible.
However, once I allow this, people will want to use \multicolumn, and
this seems for me to be beyond the scope.

I think you can ignore the rows with multicolumn in it, which would satisfy
most people I imagine.

by ignore you mean simple not format those lines? That might be an option.

However, it is unlikely that I will the table editor in org-mode to
handle such cases.  It is more likely that at some point I'll will
make a separate program based on it, that will be more flexible to adapt.
