I agree that more feedback should be given to the user.

Another common mistake for numbers and lengths is to use a decimal comma instead of a decimal dot.

I have two example of users actions which are ignored when done in tables :

1) insert a plain tabular, and type "\code⏎". Nothing move. Actually, the cell wrapping mode should have been toggled in order to allow such a content. However, no feedback is given to the user, which doesn't know what to do. We should automatically toggle the wrapping mode, or print an error message.

2) insert a plain tabular, choose cell border and type "1" at the prompt. Nothing move. Actually, a size unit lack in the user entry. However, no feedback is given to the user, which doesn't know what to do. We should consider a default unit, or print an error message.

I suppose there is numerous others GUI bugs like this. Not only with tables.
