I'm starting to use column mode (C-c C-x C-c) and I'm surprised I can't do some 
tasks from within, like for instance:
- move headings up/down with  M-up  M-down
- clock in/out tasks (C-c C-x C-i and … C-o)
- schedule tasks, etc. I always get:  if: Text is read-only: "Type `e' to edit 

  To me, column view is like a *table* of *headings* (like a normal org-table, 
I mean). I am used to the usual org's flexibility in tables and in headings, 
and therefore it seems strange having to quit and reenter column mode to do 
these changes.
  It would be an interesting experiment to have real Org tables which get/set 
their rows from the headings in the subtree and their columns from the 
properties of these headings. You would then have all the usual features of 
tables: formulas, edit fields (properties in this case) in a new buffer, …

  Mmm… maybe that table/heading/columns mix would be too complex.

  Anyway, do you also need to enter/quit column view many times? How do you use 
it comfortably?
