That would be also nice, however the problem I am facing to have a long
and complicated expression with a lot of ifs, maybe best practise would
be to split it and distribute it over various column and add comments as
in 

#+begin_src elisp
|----+----+----+---+---+----|
|  1 |  4 |  5 | 3 | 3 |  6 |
|  3 | 12 | 15 | 9 | 2 | 11 |
| 12 |  2 | 14 | 7 | 3 | 10 |
#+TBLFM: $3=vsum($1..$2);f1:: #one comment
#+TBLFM: $6=vsum($4..$5);f1:: #second comment
#+end_src
