Yup, that's the deal. The current "table" field in Rev's property
inspector is just a regular field with some scripts in it. The
functionality is faked. It's a sophisticated effort but is saddled, by
its nature, with limitations.
What others are talking about is an honest to goodness table object
implemented in the engine. Writing a new object for three operating
systems using a low-level language is, as you mentioned, a huge
undertaking. But if RR wants to have a real table, then that's what
they'd need to do.
