I think that the repeater layout (table, blocks and rows) can be improved, especially blocks.
Usually what happens is that a repeater can contain a lot of fields, or big fields (like WYSIWYG editors) and in these cases the layout is a bit messy.
More importantly, in these cases sorting is difficult: dragging between really big blocks is frustrating and sometimes buggy.
Can a different layout mode be considered? Something like accordion style, where you have blocks collapsed by default and easily sortable, and expanded on click to edit the content?
