You're ignoring the fact that D'Arcy's patch doesn't output valid ReST.
It outputs something that might pass for ReST, but only so long as there

I agree that it's a bad idea to say explicitly that it's "ReST mode" output, because it's not. But it works just fine for that purpose on almost every table I would generate on a typical day. My databases are mainly filled with plain alphanumeric text and numbers. If I can dump 99% of them into ReST using this new border but 1% require me to manually tweak by escaping some characters, that's still very useful to me. I'd hate to see a focus on the corner cases drive this feature away.
