I've seen the original Word documents. It's a bunch of two-column tables.

Not for the author. I compose tables as tables, convert to text, and apply styles just before submitting. After that, it's Steven and Nikki's problem, and they can handle it.

Speaking from the author side of things, I'd prefer working with the new format, should that come to pass. The tables spread things out and make it easier to read than the dense-pack HANG blocks.
