I would include a customization variable to control this behavior, defaulting 
to whatever the current behavior is:
(setq org-calc-extend-file nil) default system behavior
(setq org-calc-extend-file t) always silently extend rows
(setq org-calc-extend-file "warn") issue warning in message buffer that line 
was extended
(setq org-calc-extend-file "prompt") prompt user y/n on whether or not to 
extend column
