Hmm, you could make copies of the column members, of course.

constexpr TabSample tab = {};
constexpr auto alpha = tab.alpha;

Maybe but the columns into a namespace to be able to differentiate in
case of ambiguities.

I don't think so. A table has a given set of member columns. Using any
kind of lookup is contrary to what I want to achieve.

Not yet. But it is a good point.

Would you want placeholders for values? Or for columns as well? The
former shouldn't be too hard. The latter is a different story, though...

I can see Fusion for table definition (and I would require some help
with that), but where would you see Optional?
