You could visit the wiki pages related to RichFaces 4.x plans and comment ones which related to tables redesing.
ExtendedDataTable from the beggining - community contributed component - so it was designed by the guys according to their requirements. So it could lacks some features and we doing our best to add some of them but taking into consideration the fact that we should not break current functionality in minor releases.
So the 4.x major release - is the best moment to add new core features redesign markups and so on.
