When editing long tables with many columns, the user can lose track of what header coresponds to each column. I would propose to keep the header fixed and have the table in a scrollable div right beneath it. The div would be of configurable height.

I tried to write a hack for this using a scrollable div, but the column widths of the extra header will invariable mismatch those of the table (which depend on user-entered data).

I also left a wishlist at http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Plugins/EditTablePluginDev

PS (completely off-topic): the rich editor component used to report bugs doesn't allow Firefox 3 to spell check.
