[O] List-table feature (or a potential quick and easy mullti-lines table in org?)

I would have a question for you. I'm writing more and more documentation in OrgMode (with HTML and DocBook exports) and I'm very happy with it. There's a little hitch though on tables. Org tables are great with one known and documented constraints: it does not accept multi lines .
In some types of documents it can be a challenge, however, editing large columns could be a mess too.
I'm thinking about a potential alternative and I would like to know if anyone here would know if this can be done with org.
ReStructured Text  has a nice feature called list-tables. As you can guess from the name, you write a list and an instruction to process it and it creates a table out of the list in the export target. See the ReST documentation for a quick explanation . What is does it to transform a nested list in a simple table. And potentially it would make long list items / table content easy to edit.
Does anyone has heard of such a possibility in Org?
Many thanks to all!
