I have to solve a similar problem in going from CALS tables to InDesign

To solve it I generate an intermediate view of the table with all cells
made explicit. I then use that to generate the correct InDesign table

The code is part of the DITA for Publishers DITA-to-InDesign framework,
which you can find here:

The table processing code is:

The mode "make matrix table" is the mode that generates the matrix view of
the CALS table. You might find that useful for your task.
