I have no idea yet. I am not quite sure what options make sense, what
combinations are possible. This system with proportional column sizes,
makes sense to some degree for the tables I looked at, but might not
make sense for other users. So it is kind of hard for me to suggest a nice
syntax that could be extended for other users too.

I thought there was once a movement to let quickbook expand in that
direction. Do you think it would be possible to get closer to that?
