This is really a complex problem needing a lot of code refactoring: it's

Writer tables are different from Calc ones, from a user POV I'm not sure
it would be good to unify this... and once again, this would require
important and complex code refactoring.

Of course, feel free to give us a friendly helping hand to change that
code ;)
