I'd prefer not to add the ability to reference multiple tables to org-R,
as I'm planning for it to be replaced by org-babel[fn:1], which I'm
working on together with Eric Schulte. It's still in development, but
you can already do this in org-babel -- here's a simple example in which
two org tables are referenced:

#+tblname: table1
| 1 | 2 | 3 |
| 4 | 5 | 6 |

#+tblname: table2
| 4 | 5 | 6 |
| 7 | 8 | 9 |

#+srcname: multiple-ref-example
#+begin_src R :var tab1=table1 :var tab2=table2
tab1 + tab2

#+resname: multiple-ref-example
|  5 |  7 |  9 |
| 11 | 13 | 15 |

There's still work to be done, but if you do want to try it, after
downloading/cloning the code from github use the following lines to load

(add-to-list 'load-path "/path/to/org-babel/lisp")
(require 'org-babel-init)
