Disclaimer: I did not test this at all, but am interested in a convenient 
booktabs support, too.

I think it is reasonable to put the top and bottom rules automatically, as 
booktabs somewhat defines that as the intended look.  So it would be redundant 
to require a |- on top and bottom for all tables on the org side.  I even 
think that org tables with top and bottom rules do not look good, because the 
vertical lines do not stop at the horizontal lines (from a visual point of 
view).  This way it looks like is a very small empty table line above and 
below the table.
