I will as soon as I have an idea about the "that" I have to try.

I don't use column narrowing; I don't know what other users expect from
it either.

Are there some rules to decide what would be an acceptable narrowing
(e.g., narrow columns larger than 10 characters by half or to 20
characters, whichever is the smaller) or do users really need to decide
piece-wise the number of characters needed? If the latter, would
a numeric argument for the narrowing command be sufficient? Note that in
this case, it may not be possible to narrow multiple columns at a time.

Also, do we need to commands for that, or would cycling between
expanded/narrowed by some factor (see above)/shrunk states be
sufficient? What about the command line to control multiple columns?

IOW, let's discuss about specifications.
