the trick is to move point to the line *below* the table. TAB will then do
whatever it does on that line and if it happens to be an empty line or a
line with ordinary text, it indents, taking the entire region (including
the table) with it.

in essence, TAB will do whatever TAB does, regardless of whether the region
is active. so if point is still within the table, TAB moves to the next
cell, possibly creating a new one. if the line after the table contains a
headline and you move point to it, it (un)folds the headline. so you need
to make sure TAB is on a line that it indents.
