I don't understand what you mean by "not wrap the table".  If
truncate-lines is nil, then long lines _will_ be wrapped.  The Emacs
display simply don't have a third possibility: either long lines are
truncated or they are wrapped.  Preventing wrapping can cause it to
wrap the line at some other place, but wrap it will.

So I don't think I understand the request, and therefore don't see how
tables could be another relevant use case.  Can you elaborate?
