Why: because the layout algorithm could have a bad edge case if some columns are zero-width.  (It keeps trying to fill the width of the view, but maybe it will never get there?)

I ran into that while preparing for my QtWS talk about TableView.  But I needed to subclass QSortFilterProxyModel anyway, to have sorting and filtering; so it was also not too hard to change the columns there by overriding mapFromSource and mapToSource.  You could think of your QSortFilterProxyModel subclass as a “view model”, and use it do whatever corrections you need to make to the original model to make it presentable.  At least that’s what I came up with for now.
