Fixing the roundtrip, eg. adding support to floating tables would be quite some
work (I don't have an estimation, though). The tuning of heuristics are for
relatively specific cases, and a new one can pop up anyime, eg. bug 114217
surfaced just now.

I'm a bit afraid that adding extra "hidden" functionality to that checkbox is
something that might elude users, I'd prefer it as a separate frame-removing
button (or maybe have both). I guess that'd also have more impact on the UI,
which might be undesirable...
