Yes.

AFAIK there is no way to get the list of lists.

But if you didn’t already you may consider to separate the calculation
of rows and columns into two steps which I think should be possible in
most cases and use something like this:

| a | b | prod |
|---+---+------|
| 2 | 3 |    6 |
| 4 | 5 |   20 |
|   |   |   26 |
#+TBLFM: $3 = '(* $1..$2); N :: @>$3 = '(+ @2..@3); N

or with Calc formulas:

#+TBLFM: $3 = vprod($1..$2) :: @>$3 = vsum(@2..@3)
