Note that you can instead use Elisp formulas. See 3.5.3 Emacs Lisp forms
as formulas. It is more flexible.

Alternatively, we may implement the comma separators as a built-in
feature. Org table formulas already support notations like

| 3,5 | 4,2 | 7 |
#+TBLFM: $3=$1+$2;N


#+TBLFM: $3=$1+$2;E
#+TBLFM: $3=$1+$2;L

(see 3.5.2 Formula syntax for Calc)

we may as well implement something like ";Nc" that will interpret cells
as numbers with "," as decimal point separator.

Is there such a demand?
