Graphic and text in same cell(s) or table
I can't see how to do it presently but it would be great to be able to put both a graphic and text placed over it in the same cell, or a number of cells or the entire table. RIght now it appears to be an either/or choice. I have anchored an image to a table so that it overprints the cell or table but that is rather clunky.

Alternatively, have table cell image fill option.

technically it's possible to have a text frame plus a graphic frame as contents of a graphic cell.
But unfortunately it's unwise to enforce this.* InDesign would crash in the moment you try to copy a page with such a table. Or if you try to duplicate a table like that.
* I will not go in the details how such a construct will be made.
