The "table" object is a LiveCode field with special cell-editing 
provided with an overlay field; in all other respects it has only the 
same features any multi-column LiveCode field has, which historically 
prevented independent column alignment.

The DataGrid is great, but ideally for forms. Beyond the convenient 
headers, the list mode is really just a very complex way to work around 
not having independent column alignment in native fields.

With the field object now supporting independent column alignment, we 
get attractive super-efficient, super-simple displays for columnar data 
that may include numeric values.
