Hi Gustav

Ehm - it is doable, but not by editing commands from Org table. Only
with several rectangular edits or an Org table formula with a few
tricks and a temporary column to be removed afterward. Probably not as
comfortable as you have expected:

- insert row in only one column
  start with:
  | a | 1 |   |
  | b | 3 |   |
  | c | 4 |   |
  | d |   |   |

  | a | 1 | 1 |
  | b | 3 |   |
  | c | 4 | 3 |
  | d |   | 4 |
  #+TBLFM: @1$3=$-1::@3$3..@>$3=subscr(@2$2..@>>$2, @# - 2)

- remove again
  start with:
  | a | 1 |   |
  | b |   |   |
  | c | 3 |   |
  | d | 4 |   |

  | a | 1 | 1 |
  | b |   | 3 |
  | c | 3 | 4 |
  | d | 4 |   |
  #+TBLFM: @1$3=$-1::@2$3..@>>$3=subscr(@3$2..@>$2, @# - 1)

See the Calc manual for "subscr" and the Org manual for "@#" and the rest.

If it does not work (e. g. org-version 6.33) then upgrade.
