The @Tab symbol has spanning columns but not spanning rows.  Lout's

packaged for presentation to the ordinary user.
If you want to be clever you can try
    -90d @Rotate @Tab
        @Fmta { @Col 90d @Rotate A ! @Col 90d @Rotate B ! ... }
That is, rotate the table so that @Tab's spanning columns come out
as spanning rows, then rotate each entry back again.  OK, it's crazy,
but it would work.
