Yes, we’re well aware of the limitations and quirks of the TableView in Qt Quick Controls 1. :) QAbstractTableModel support is considered as a requirement for the new TableView. I’m quite confident we can base the new TableView on the same item-view framework ListView and GridView use, so it can support the same item view transitions and so on.

The plan is that the new TableView would be on the same line with ListView and GridView. The visual delegates are left to the user to provide. For those who want ready-made styles, we provide a bunch of simple styled delegates in Qt Quick Controls 2.
