Yes, that separation is essential. I agree.

Great truth! I always try to take things to the extreme :-D, and I
continue thinking that Org is (among many other things) an excellent
'interface' for LaTeX (maybe the best). But I have to admit that a table
with a lot of complexity is a special case when maybe you have to write
LaTeX code, and get lost between all those & and backslashes, at least
if the goal is the typographic refinement. The greatest power of Org
resides in his lightness and in its chameleon versatility, but his worst
temptation may be to become in a (poor) LaTeX 'translation'.

Best regards,

Juan Manuel
