Provide merged and split cell support with Confluence native tables

Description

We're missing the ability to have Confluence tables to span over several columns or rows.
This is a major lack of functionality of Confluence tables in general. I was hoping that the Table Plugin would overcome this limition, but so far it does not.

I do understand that spanning over multiple rows is probably impossible given current Confluence table implementation,
I was hoping that the {csv} or {table-plus} macro could at least provide the col-span feature.
For example, in conjunction with multiple header rows, it is quite common that there are column headers which
spread over several columns.
(but this request is not only for the header row(s) )
