The point of orgtbl-mode is to edit Org tables, not Markdown tables,
which have a different syntax.

The usual workflow is to edit the Org mode tables and "send" it to
another location within the same buffer, applying some pre-defined
transformation. See (info "(org) Radio tables") for more information.

Another option is to add an advice on `org-table-align'. See
