There can be a need for having a large table containing static text e.g. table having legend info.
Consider there are 4 columns and 100 rows of static text in the table.
Creating a static text for each cell in the table and writing the content would be a tedious task.
This task can be simplified if there is a support for creating a table of static contents from an input file, say, csv/txt.

The table element can read the data from datasource but it works dynamically at run time, it'll be good if similiar functionality is available at design time for static data.
