There is org-table-wrap-region function that could help to type text
occupying several cell, but the result will not become single cell 
during export.

I have seen several threads related to multiline cells, e.g.

https://orgmode.org/list/f2e9aaacd51ee95dcc696ed9485741dde1067340.camel@sindominio.net/T/#u
org-cell in org-table with a list or a new paragraph

or proposal of another extension:

Tables: missing multi-col/row syntax

As to MultiMarkdown, the link that you posted says

> Cell content must be on one line only

Personally I do not mind to have paragraph-like cells, but I am afraid 
that it requires a lot of work to support export, feeding src blocks, 
alignment.
