I think the idea of a ROE pattern is quite clever. Primarily I was
thinking of two use cases:
* The table was produced as the output of some simple program/calculation.
In this case a ROE pattern will work well. The result after the
replacement should probably depend on what table markups that are
available, there are some interesting ideas in this thread.
* Writing the table on the wiki page without clutter, i.e. the markup
should visually look like a table. It's ok if this doesn't allow
all kinds of special formatting, e.g. horizontal alingment.
