I don't know if we're talking about the same problem, but what I hate
about natural tables as well (although I use them all the time) is
very bad spacing: horizontal offset is too narrow and vertical offset
is too big (well, it also depends on content, but in general
"\starttable/tabulate" looks much better regarding spacing).

If I want smaller table I usually do
... table ...

but that is not *the* solution. Tables still look "bad" that way. The
main problem is that there is no special parameter for "horizonal
offset" and "vertical offset" for \framed, otherwise the user could
modify that at least to some extent. I have no idea how "usual tables"
create "nice spacing".
