You are talking about section "3.5 The spreadsheet". I don't think this
feature is directly related to spreadsheet capabilities.

Actually, / in first column is described earlier in the manual, in "3.3
Column groups". Besides, there is a similar feature described in "3.2
Column width and alignment", about lines containing only alignment

     Lines which only contain these formatting cookies will be removed
  automatically when exporting the document.

IMO, a better change would be to merge 3.2 and 3.3 as "Column
operations" or some such, and add "<#>" as a way to ignore columns upon
exporting. This way, everything related to columns is packed in the same
subsection, and every column markup uses < or >. Moreover, there is no
possible confusion with # markup from spreadsheet.
