That triggered creation of this chapter of the handbook:

Yes, sometimes I am looking into ways to make Kexi even simpler to
use, so if user wants it - it can be in the middle between a
spreadsheet and a db creation app. Ad-hoc creating table designs
(while entering the data) is one of the things, quite hard to
implement though. Interesting, after the idea came MSA (maybe 2003?)
added similar feature.

But before it's reality we probably need to get reliable alter-table
feature to work.

What exact features of simple table creation do you mean?
