Yes, that works fine as well: the only real need is to be able to have
parts that are wrapped and parts that are truncated.  On the Elisp side
in case of Org table it would be more convenient to mark the tables as
"truncate rather than wrap" than to mark everything else as "wrap
instead of truncate", but if there's a significant difference on the
redisplay side, that should/will probably be the determining factor.
