Why No Tables or Paragraph Borders in OneNote?

One of the areas where it seems OneNote Lags a bit is with content formatting
(e.g. it's harder than heck to resize columns, set tabs, etc.).

In that vein, why can't we put content in something with a border (e.g. a
one cell table, a paragraph with border properties, etc.)?

I often would like to use OneNote to document steps, procedures, and so on.
If that requires including the contents of a particular file, document,
whatever, it'd be nice to have a way to distinguish the file's contents from
the rest of the note's contents, with a line border (shadows as an option
would be a big plus).

I hope this is already on the drawing board....?

Indeed it is already on the drawing board. I think Owen discussed it in his
blog.

Interesting to see how the tune changes from "OneNote is not Excel" to
"it's being implemented" once Microsoft finally gets around to dealing
with obvious deficiencies.

In fact improved table formatting has been on the feature list for OneNote
12 for a very long time. Unlike you, the OP is not asking for OneNote to
also perform calculations, create charts and graphs, query data from Oracle
datacenters and balance their checkbook. ;-)

It is indeed interesting.

V1 of OneNote had a very good yet basic and streamlined set of tools to do
its core job - taking and organizing notes. It was never intended to be a
spreadsheet or word processor. MS is adding features to make OneNote
better at its core purpose - note taking - and not to turn it into a
spreadsheet. Folks here are being consistent.
