Exactly.  It's not really Org-tables in LaTeX, treat it rather as
a proof of concept.

Since Org tables are (syntax-wise) fairly simplistic, in principle it
wouldn't be too difficult to write a (La)TeX package to deal with them
directly.  Of course, there are tricky things, like the spreadsheet
(little hope for implementing that), column groups and width/alignment
cookies.  Those features would probably need two passes - the first one
would gather the information from the cookies, the second one would
typeset the table.  Possible, but probably not worth the effort.
