Adding support for CSV and TSV files in GitHub editor

related doc:
Reading CSV and TSV data
Editing files in your repository

Hello! I have been wondering if it would be feasible to support the CSV (and TSV) in the lovely Github editor and preview, so it wont be edited as the hard-to-read raw text that it is.
My hope is that we could edit or at least preview the changes in those files in a human readable way.
In the editor I imagine the options to - edit an existing cell, adding/removing a row (and maybe adding/removing a col).
while in the Preview feature, I want to see if the file is written properly (see “Handling Errors” in “Reading CSV and TSV data”), and highlight changes in the table cells.

I would also like to contribute the development of this feature if possible.

Thank you in advance, Kfir.
