Problem -
When asking OOo Writer to record changes, it seems to fail to record the
deletion of a row from a table.

This is a general problem of object structure changes tracking.
Basically, Writer can only track text changes.

This applies to:

For some or all of those actions

Note: when implementing those trackings, we may choose the way MS-Word does when
encountering technical deadends: warn the user!
Ex (in Word):
- delete a table row -> change tracked
- delete a table column -> Warning: "Action will not be tracked - Do you want to

Missing tracking of changes (without any notice to the user) is a severe bug and
not a feature. I just compared two versions (mine and one of a colleague)
containing some tables. By merging both documents I missed due to bug 76935 some
changes that were actually made to tables, but that were not displayed.

Please consider this earlier than "OOo Later". Thank you.

@MBA: Reassigning to you in case we have some resources for this.

It's very annoying bug, i forced to work with large amount of MS Word documents that has tracked changes in table and paragraph structure and I can't even normally read such documents because of structure inconsistency.
