Yes I concurr - my users would find the WYSIWYG table border editing very
useful, plus sizing of tables.
Also noted that the table gets centred on the page - can't seem to left or
right justify it. Also can't insert tables within tables. Also the bulleting
breaks when switching between the WYSIWYG editor and the wiki editor.

At this moment you cannot change the table border using the new WYSIWYG 
editor. Unfortunately, AFAIK, this feature hasn't been planed for 1.8. 
You can open a JIRA issue and we'll handle it in the 1.9 time span. 
Until then you can still style your table with the XWiki 2.0 syntax, 
from the Wiki editor, by writing something like:

(% style="background-color: gray;" %)
|= foo|=bar
|(% style="font-size:24pt;" %)a|(% class="loading" %)b

We'll try to make this features available as soon as possible.
