As hinted on the manual
and written explicitly on a StackOverflow topic,
the left hand side of table formulas currently cannot contain

  The left-hand side of a column formula cannot be the name of column,
  it must be the numeric column reference or $>.

In examples like the following, this would be very convenient though:

| Value 1 | Value 2 | Sum |
|       1 |       1 |     |
|       3 |       4 |     |
| Average | of sums |     |
#+TBLFM: @I$3..@II$3=$1+$2::$3=vmean(@I..@II)

If I remember correctly, it used to work (I found a similar line in
org documents from June 2015).  Is it possible to have this feature
(back), now officially?
