comment Is it acceptable to have an editable field visible on hover?
I agree it's possible.. but requires fair amount of work to define the right granularity, handle any other related events being fired, track it across sessions but then how would multi-user scenarios be handled. Along with Undo, you'll want to offer redo. Just more things to think and define , but I agree the tech exists and it has been done in past.

comment How can this calendar widget use case be improved to be more intuitive for users?
Does the table support keyboard nav ? Since people would interact with 1000s of rows, I would imagine it does and I would expect that to become the primary way of interacting. Does this sound right ?

No discovery was not a problem in our case. Insightify is used by very non-tech savvy people to regular researchers who are active online. I initially targetted the product toward UX folks and the feedback on the affordance in general was very positive. Auto-save was definitely challenging technically and allowing undos was so complex that we had to backburner that.
