What is the proposed idea/solution?

Identify which area the columns belong to through colors.

How does is solve the user problems?

It allows identifying groups of columns belonging to different teams, departments or stages of a process.

How was this validated?

By right clicking on a column, in the edition, there will be a colored icon. There, you could choose the color of the column (using the same shape and colors used in Single Select.

When selecting the color, it will display a subtle, minimalist and thin line of color above the column name. (See capture)

Conditional cell colouring is also a must if field theming is being considered. The recently added progress bar fields are kinda cool, but are really no substitute for highlighting data with varying colours and text styles (bold/italics/underscores)
