I've been following this thread and wondering what a use case would be for
subdividing cells.

 OK: suppose you divide cell Xn into four cells- two vertically and two
horizontally.  How do you now refer to the four new cells in formulae?

Initially, until some method was developed that made sense, it could just
be a limitation of split cells that you can't use them in formulas.

And maybe it would have to stay that way. None of the times I wanted to be
able to do this was it critical that I me able to use them in formulas.

 And which of the now four separate values gets used if you refer to
plain cell Xn in a formula?

Pick one (upper left, lower right, etc). Could even be a pref. Or, as
above, make it unsupported, unless/until a method is developed for
supporting it that makes sense.
