Good day, Thomas.

No.
Russian applied specialists can.
It's true.
Especially about physicists.

I already thought about this.
Look at TML

TB> Let's low-skill users use tools designed for them, or just improve
TB> their skills (that's how everyone began coding, isn't it?)

Tools don't satisfy all needs,
and job of coding must be reduced so much, as it's possible.

TB> you'll want more dimensions

Display is fundamentally 2D.
Human vision is fundamentally 3D.
Display will never show information with dimension, more than 3.

TB> hard to learn for everyone

There is no way, which hard or easy -
there is way, which is MORE hard or easy, than another way.
Let's compare at least any two ways.

TB> even the 95% of people that do not need multi-dimensional tables.

I already wrote, that people don't remember and confuse two things:
un-impossible things, un-desirable things.
People have much reflexes.
