To have similar things look similar and make it clear in the manual I
suggest to change the long existing

     Do not export this line.  Useful for lines that contain the
     narrowing `<N>' markers or column group markers.

     Do not export this row or column.  In the first column ~/~ means
     do not export this row which is useful for rows that contain the
     narrowing ~<N>~ markers, column group markers or markers to not
     export a column.  In all other columns ~/~ means do not export
     this column if also the first column is marked with ~/~.  When
     the first column should not be exported move its content other
     than markers into an other column.

  When more than one marker is needed in a column put each in an own
  row with ~/~ in the first column.
