How does emacs choose what special editor (or if one exists) to call when running org-edit-special at point?

I work a lot with data in tables in my org files, and often have tables hundreds of lines long that are often pasted in ascii and converted to org tables using C-c |
I generally want the tables to start out folded, which I currently accomplish by wrapping them in a #+BEGIN_TABLE/#+END_TABLE block
I'd love to be able to pop them out into a separate frame for editing using C-c ' (org-edit-special), remaining in org mode the whole time.
I DON"T want to call the formula editor with C-c ', even if I'm within the table itself. I could live with this as long as I can jump to start of line and pop out into a special buffer.
It looks like I should be looking toward org-edit-src-code, but it does not appear to be easily configurable for new/different language types.
A more advanced solution would be to pop the table out into a specialized table-editing minor mode, org major mode with some specialized keybindings to assist in editing the tables.

Any ideas? Any quick solutions?
