I think that the last bullet point could use clarification.  The way I might 
word this is that it should be possible to order table data in row-order or 
column-order depending on how it is most likely to be accessed.  This is of 
course a determination that would have to be made by the user, and sometimes 
there is no right answer (but where there is a right answer it should be 
possible to do).
